I have found this book invaluable as I am a collector of souvenir spoons. If you collect souvenir spoons, thinking about collecting them or just enjoy looking at them - you need this book!
I found this to be the most useful available book on spoons. There's a nice appendix on the manufacturing process, the difference between engraved and embossed, methods of coloring, etc. Many illustrations, photos of existing spoons. Some of the photos are not great, but it is hard to photograph spoons. The author did the best possible. Highly recommended.
A recommended pick for any collector's reference library, WayneBednersh's Collectible Souvenir Spoons Book II ... considers both usual and unusual categories of spoons, from historical and art spoons to rarer prison spoons.
As a newbie in the world of spoon collecting... This book was very fascinating and helpful. The pictures were clear in presenting small deatil on the spoons.
Everyone who is interested in sterling silver and other types of collectible spoons, needs to purchase a book like this. The author has made a grand effort to bring together a great many styles of spoons for the reader and viewer......ENJOY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is a great reference book with many bits of information that I had never read about before and the photo's are great....This is a must have for spoon collectors....
