In this comprehensive labor of love, House Beautiful executive editor Shax Riegler presents a persuasive case that the dinner plate can be a piece of art that enriches our lives in ways that have nothing to do with nutrition. To make that case, he displays more than 740 painted and decorated dishes from medieval wooden trenchers to the intricate designs of today. Among the pieces illustrated are the creations of Wedgewood, Spode, Russel Wright, Vera Wang and Diane von Furstenberg. The book's stunning full-color photographs, its sidebars, timeline, and master list of the top 100 patterns of all time make Dish valuable to both first-time fans and obsessive collectors.
