For me this is 160 pages of pure joy…having collected Mdina and Isle of Wight Studio Glass for a number of years, I had lots of unanswered questions which are all now put to rest… The 250 full colour photographs are everything that the glass deserves….and for the collector there are lots of factory/shop colour photographs, company advertisements, and promotional shots. For the first time, this book outlines the Harris’ original Mdina designs and shapes and separates them from later Mdina interpretations. The section on marks, signatures and labels also provides invaluable information for dating. More power to the Hill elbow!

Congratulations on a fantastic book. You have truly created the bible on Michael Harris plus a lot more.
I have had a chance to read the IOW book and just wanted to congratulate you on a very interesting and informative book.

Just a note to say how impressed we are with your IOW book. It is so comprehensive, and just what serious collectors have needed for a long time. Many thanks.

The book arrived today and it far exceeded my expectations. The plates are gorgeous, and the text is wonderful! Thank you so much for including the price list too. Altogether, a stellar transaction, for which I thank you sincerely!
Just a little note to say how much I am enjoying your book.Not only is it very informative and interesting, but the photos have taken me down memory lane to the visits we paid to the Mdina factory, the heat of the furnace in the old airfield buildings and the image of the glassblowers totally absorbed in their art. It has a truly put a smile on my face.
LOVE the book! I’ve just spent a very enjoyable day trawling through it comparing my very newly acquired bits and pieces to those in the book. I think that I shall be making more informed choices from now on, thanks to you.
