I bought this book as a souvenir after seeing The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass. This book was a good value for the price. However, it is worth noting that the white background of the photos did not enhance the beauty of the lamps as well as a darker background would have. One book on the subject with much more vivid photos is The Lamps of Louis Comfort Tiffany. If I wanted to spend more, I would have bought that book instead.
Eight color photos do more than display Tiffany lamps, as other titles do: they have been polled from thousands of lamps with hundreds of designs to show the differences in shade patterns and complexity. A lovely display of colors and patterns is accompanied by clear description and artistic and collector value insights. "Tiffany By Design" is an outstanding reference and a welcome addition to personal, professional, academic, and community library Antiques & Collectibles reference collections.Diane C.

From a survey of the types of glass to detailed information on lamp patterns and construction, Nina Gray never disappoints with her scholarship. This is a must for the Tiffany enthusiast! I LOVE it!
Excellent research book on Louis Comfort Tiffany's stained glass work. In depth information and many pictures to review.Perfect book for the project I am working on. Great price too.
Lovely book with beautiful illustrations!
