Lois Comfort Tiffany was a master at his art. I was unaware of his many beautiful church windows. Awe inspiring!

This is one of the most complete books on Tiffany's works that I have seen to date. I would call it the absolute most complete book, but I know for a fact that two stained glass windows found in Virginia, and a few lamps are not depicted here for whatever reason. The photography is of the highest quality! The colors are accurate and magnificently printed, making this the best visual reference book for anyone interested on Tiffany's works. The text elaborates on Tiffany's life and works, keeping it straight to the point, which in some parts might feel a little hurried, but above all it makes it not at all boring to read. Also several of Tiffany's paintings are depicted and elaborated upon; painting being one of this great artist's talents that's often overlooked. Something unusual about this book is that it's presented in English, German, and French, printed side-by-side. If you are looking for a book on Louis Comfort Tiffany that has both historic content and the best photographs of Tiffany's works, this is the one to get!
