The second edition of the Harmony Kingdom reference guide provides even more fascinating background on the company than the first, and provides even more useful data on the collection.If you're an HK collector, this second edition is indispensible. If you're not one, reading this book will make you one.There was a large group of retirements immediately before the publication of the first edition, so the second edition provides production figures for thirty pieces whose true rarity may be a surprise to HK collectors.The background information in the first volume is not completely repeated, which prevents the first edition from becoming truly obsolete.
Excellent Guide. The book is organized in a manner that makes it easy to find individual pieces. The information is both informative and entertaining (to a collector of HK anyway). I was surprised to find so many of the new pieces in the book, Leanna must have worked up to the last second including them. This is a must for any Harmony Kingdom collector.
Anyone who collects Harmony Kingdom will find this book interesting and extremely helpful. The author provides a wealth of information on the company and the artists, an explanation of how the boxes are made, and a listing for each piece. The listing for each piece includes a picture, a description, information on variations, and the secrets to be found on the piece. A really handy book to have with you when you go out hunting for HK!Even if you have the first edition of this book, I think you will want this edition too. It includes all the pieces released through 1999 and more background information on the artists and the company than appeared in the first edition.
This book is alive with information and color. There's an interesting summary of the history of Harmony Ball Company followed by a step-by-step (with pictures) rendition of how Harmony Kingdom Treasure Jests are made. I loved reading about all the pieces and their hidden meanings and secrets, each with a lovely full-color photo. The index will help me manage my GROWING Harmony Kindgom collection! Wonderful book, well worth the price.
