Best book on working with stained glassBy Sandra Hart
I got Kicking glass as a gift. It is the best book on working with stained glass that I have ever come across. I have worked with stained glas for about 15 yrs and like most crafts, you never stop learning, but this book goes into detail and never makes the assumption that the reader already knows a bit.. I would highly recommend it.
