Wow you got locked out. Type in recruit, click on the guy swimming and the book is called recruited.
I was NOT disappointed when I was finally able to explore this newest Red Wing Pottery Guide. The book features many rare and one-of-a-kind pieces not found in other guides. At last, all the categories of Red Wing production are contained in a single book! The text is simple and direct with prices for each photo, as opposed to books with price lists in the back. The 'shape number' listing makes finding specific pieces easy and the phogography is excellent. Wonderful guide!
Why is this a good book for beginners? All the categories contained in a one volume; text with prices for each photo; shape list makes finding pieces simple; book features many rare items not found in other guides; excellent photography; organization is thoughtful and logical; includes great selection of RumRill.
Very exciting to view pieces in the book that are rare and can only be seen in a serious collection. Great photography!
I was looking forward to publication of this book. Here's way I am disappointed. 1. The photography. Most of the shiny pieces have white glare spots. Very distracting. 2. The bold captions such as 'Two vases' and 'Three vases' are obvious and not informative. 3. The organization. For example, the dinnerware section is arranged by pattern but 'Reamer', 'Pitcher' and many others are not patterns. 4. Errors. Chuck Wagon dinner plate is listed as Round Up. White & Turquoise casserole is listed as Spruce. (What else is wrong? How do we know?) 5. Prices. Granted this is not a science but the many of the prices seem to be half or less of what they are currently selling for in shops. I would not recommend this book for a beginning collector and am afraid an experienced collector will not find enough new information here to warrant purchasing it.
