Pipes have been around nearly as long as human civilization itself. But it isn't only smokers who enjoy them! Just consider the tremendous diversity of shapes, sizes, and colors -- not to mention the variety of materials used to make them, from clay to boxwood to porcelain, including corncob, briar, and meerschaum. Pipes are created all over the world. Some are such amazing works of sculpture that you might even forget their original function. So whether you are interested in antique or brand-new pipes, whether you prefer models that come from molds or those that have been carved, and especially if you're curious about the topic, this book is the perfect resource.
