Many design and project books on stained glass-making are available. This one by Allison and informed by the expertise of Michael Johnston, who owns Rainbow Vision Stained Glass in Harrisburg, PA, proposes to take your skills up a notch with its advanced instruction. It follows Basic Stained Glass Making: All the Skills and Tools You Need To Get Started(2003) and uses the same equipment and materials chapter. There are only four projects, the most complex being a hanging lampshade. Each is accompanied by numerous step-by-step photos illustrating the textual instructions exactly. While these instructions are superior, the lack of project variety is disappointing. Also, the designs are not terribly inspired. If your library has a comprehensive collection on stained glass-making, this book will make a serviceable addition; however, for an array of beautiful stained-glass projects, you will have to look elsewhere.
