This sumptuous volume features 70 lamps, photographed by Colin Cooke using his own specially developed techniques that reveal Louis C. Tiffanys mastery of glassmaking and metal work. The authors relate the chief decorative themes in Louis Comfort Tiffanys masterpieces to the work of other fin-de-sicle glassmakers and outline the making of Louis C. Tiffanys lamps, from freehand sketch to elegant finished form.
