Other Thoughts : I do love this book!

  •   Just Right
By on
Pros : Out of the 5 "how to fuse glass" books I have, I refer to this one the most. Not too much history or too much highly technical stuff like some of the others. Just what you need to understand the craft and do it!
Cons : Agree with the others: the price may deter many folks from purchasing.
Other Thoughts : Lots of great illustrations.
