For 100 years Steuben has represented the pinnacle of the American glassmaker''s art--internationally acclaimed, a gift of presidents, and treasured possession of collectors. But not everyone who can afford to buy Steuben crystal intuitively appreciates its quality, history, and inherent value. With compelling words and striking images, Steuben Glass: A Legacy of Light and Form reveals Steuben''s colorful history, peerless artisanship, and uncompromising standard of quality. In this volume, the images tell the Steuben story: vintage photographs reveal its history; journalistic shots chronicle the painstaking process of designing, forming, finishing, and engraving a piece of Steuben; and gorgeous still-life images commissioned especially for this book display the astounding clarity and sculptural beauty of Steuben''s masterworks. Brief introductory texts and extended captions are all seamlessly melded with the images in a modern, sophisticated design that reflects Steuben''s forward-looking approach as it launches its second century of making "the world''s most perfect crystal."
