Does anyone know the earliest of the illustrated lampwork bead books? Not necessarily instruction books....but color photos for sure?

Maybe the SGB exhibition catalogs from 92-93 or so?
I had the Kerwin book back then and it had no photos.

It suddenly struck me yesterday, that I didn't know the earliest and that got me curious. I tried searching ...but I am search challenged. I have the black & white illustrated soft cover book, too....

PLus....If I don't have it, I want it. In fact, I expect I need it.....right???

I have a book by hammarsfar and stong called creative glassblowing that has some bead making instructions in it. I got it about 32 years ago, and it had been in print quite a while at that point. It has some pretty odd ways of doing things in that book, but covers a wide range of flameworking.. At the time it was the ONLY book out there.

I got to thinking... the corning museum of glass in corning new york has a huge library of old glass books and info etc. I bet you could call them , and they would be happy to give you the info you want, and perhaps even send some copies of things, and at least a list of thigs. There is also a book store in that area that handles old out of print glass blooks. Dont recal the name of it from years and years ago, but I bet the folks at the museum would know.

I took a class at corning many monns ago, and part of the tour was of the museum and the info available at the library they have. Great resource for research.

I have the catalog from the first Gathering. It is a 15 page booklet with a photo each from 29 beadmakers. It was published by the bead museum in Scottsdale in '93.

I think you are talking about Whitehouse Books. But their web site whitehouse-books.com shows just a blank page, so I don't know what's going on.

Alas, Whitehouse Books closed a while ago. Unfortunate too, as they had a great selection. I've spent a small fortune there myself :)
