Good book to read about Lladro porcelains but it's pretty outdated and doesn't contain samples of the newer Lladro pieces. But then again, Lladro related books are so rare, this itself is a jewel. Majority of the pictures shown here are the 'official' photographs of piece by Lladro themselves. It would have been great to see pictures taken by the author or owner as it would give a different angle and view of the pieces. I'm an avid collector and was thrilled to see many of the older pieces and read a short history about them in this book. Perhaps the author would consider to publish a newer edition?? And also source out Lladro examples from a more varied selection of collectors. A view of how they are stored in display cabinets at individual homes would be great too, to give a more personal and homely touch to the pieces. This is a great book and I'm sure it took a lot of effort to come out with it.... I would recommend it to anyone and hope that new editions will be published in the near future.
For anyone who is interested in learning more about Lladró, the company, the history, the incredible artistry, "relatives" such as NAO and Zaphir, collecting and becoming better at collecting, and how to care for your collection, this book is fantastic and I highly recommend it! Peggy Whiteneck is truly an expert in this field, and has a passion for collecting Lladró that shows in every page. This second edition includes updates and new information as well as even more photos. Lladró collectors will not want to miss this!
As a Lladro collector of more than 25 years I found this book to be most informative. Even though I have read much about Lladro there were topics covered that were new to me. A new addition would be most welcome.
I got mine second hand for more than the original selling price, but a bit disappointed in format. Would still recommend to any one for general information on Lladro. Peggy writes book well for information. Just a bit light-on on listing. I have other book of her on Lladro.
I was looking for a Lladro book in order to see what the current prices for pieces that I have. I was a bit disappointed that the book wasn't extensive enough. It does have lovely pictures and is of good quality. It helped somewhat for my purpose and does make a lovely coffee table addition.
I could find several of my pieces in this book. I was hoping for a little more background on the Lladro history and in particular their Nao line of porcelain.
good product....a little hard to decipher in some places but all-in-all helpful. alot of photos but wish there could have been more
