Andy McConnel:
Miller's 20th Century Glass
Octobus Publishing Group Ltd 2006
22,5x28,7cm, 256 sivua/pages
ISBN 1 84533 099 4

For the first time ever, this indispensable guide identifies over 2000 pieces, shedding light on a mass of previously unidentified but highly collectable glass. Throughout, the emphasis is on items that are actually available on the market rather than museum pieces. All items, where relevant, have a value code indicating a range of current market prices.

Expert Andy McConnell gives tips on identification and collecting, and surveys the overall history of 20th-century glass and country-by-country developments. The work of the main designers of key glassworks is presesnted in illustrated timelines that provide unique at-a-glance studies of their development.

The book highlights important factories such as Holmegaard (Denmark) and Iittala (Finland), and celebrated designers including Per Lütken, Timo Sarpaneva, Nanny Still, and Alexander Hardie Williamson, alongside less well-known but increasingly collectable makers. Over 2000 new colour photographs, and design drawings sourced from historic archives and private collections, illustrate the range of beautiful glass available, alongside makers' marks and signatures.

20th-Century Glass is a groundbreaking title, essential reading for every collector in the field.
