(HIGGINS, FRANCES & MICHAEL). JOHNSON, DONALD-BRIAN & LESLIE PIŅA - HIGGINS: POETRY IN GLASS

Title: HIGGINS: POETRY IN GLASS
Description: Altglen, PA, Schiffer Publishing, Ltd., 2005, First Edition. (ISBN: 0-7643-0021-0) Cloth in Dust Jacket, 4to, 240pp, 763 illustrations in color and b&w. "With its arresting mix of geometric and curved lines, and bold use of colors, Higgins glass transformed ordinary table and giftware, from chip bowls and cake stands to candleholders and cigarette boxes, into something vibrant and exciting. Useful as well as attractive, the designs of artists Frances and Michael Higgins harnessed vivid imagination to innate practicality. Newly discovered promotional photos, original designs, and advertising materials as well as extensive commentary by Frances Higgins and other Studio personnel highlight the informative, entertaining text, including a personal view of the creation of Higgins glass". One of the most beautiful, and well-designed of the Schiffer modernist decorative arts publications, this is an invaluable guide to more than five decades worth of the Higgins' lovely objects in glass, virtually none of which none of which appear in the authors' previous Higgins monograph - "Adventures in Glass". A pristine copy. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase..
