This book is great as I was expecting. I really like the clever way the authors found to link the text to their videos which are so helpful. They lay out each section very clearly and deliberately. I highly recommend this superb little volume which also fits great in the hand.— J. Kenneth Leap, author of Silver Stain: An Artist’s Guide

What a breath of fresh air – a clear, concise book on glass painting. This is the perfect book for anybody beginning or experienced. The clarity, simplicity and step-by-step information is a real joy. There’s also great information on what materials and tools to buy. One of the things my father always believed in was how techniques should be freely shared and that, if someone is able to do things better than you with that information, that’s the way it should be done. David Williams learnt from him, and this book is a must for studios and individuals alike. I thoroughly recommend it— John Reyntiens: Reyntiens Glass Studio
