COTTON, BERNARD D
Scottish Vernacular Furniture
. Part of the appeal of vernacular furniture is that to understand it we must look closely at social history, and engage with lifestyles that range from self-sufficient to sophisticated. To write this book demanded more than scholarship. Bernard Cotton and his wife Gerry made it a priority to discover pieces in their contexts, to meet the people who used them, and to understand how they were made. The story of their quest is itself an adventure. Some of the objects represent the life and death of a community, the vital evidence of a vanished culture. Vernacular furniture proves beyond question that limited resources, even poverty, need not exclude aesthetic qualities, nor need the functional exclude beauty and charm. Furniture of the types examined in this book can be found today as far away as North America, Australia and New Zealand. 2008, new hardback in fine d/j folio 31 x 24 cm. 304pp. 544 Illustrations, 412 in colour. (ISBN: 9780500238578) .

RICKE, HELMUT,
Glass Art. Reflections of the Centuries
. The Glasmuseum Hentrich in Düsseldorf's Museum Kunst Palast, one of the world's most wide-ranging glass collections, is the basis for this generously illustrated exploration of glass art from prehistory to the present, written by the collection's longtime director, Helmut Ricke. Glass was the first man-made material, and nearly every civilization made use of its flexibility, resilience, and variety. Brimming with colorful images from the collection as well as maps and drawings, this book covers all periods of glassmaking from pre-Roman, Roman, Islamic, Mediaeval, Renaissance and Baroque times, the nineteenth century and up to the 1990s. It includes stunning examples of enameled and cut glass, as well as elaborate works from Persia, India and China, all of which influenced the Art Nouveau period, widely considered the heyday of decorative glass. A detailed appendix provides background information on the mechanics of glass, including smelting, refining, and manufacturing. A valuable resource for anyone interested in this ancient medium, this magnificent catalog highlights a world-famous collection of glass art. 2002, 384 pages, 363 colour illustrations, 89 b/w illustrations, Hardcover in dust jacket, still in shrink wrapper. size: 270 x 210 mm.
