This visual experience reveals the evolution of Josh Simpson’s evocative glass art over the past 50 years. Enjoy spectacular images and texts from experts in the field, as well as from Simpson himself (those are the funny parts, due to his trademark sense of humor). Especially timely: it's the 50th-anniversary year of his work.

His signature works in glass engage tens of thousands worldwide, and this landmark comprehensive book beautifully reveals Simpson's boundary-stretching innovations in how glass is used. Chapters organized by his best-known works allow collectors, the public, experts, and students to marvel at how and why his best-known works are famous: Goblets, Planets, Vessels, Sculpture, Stellar Disks. Also included are details on his less known and experimental works, including New Mexico Glass, Tektites, and other convention-breaking contributions to glass art. Especially timely since it's the 50th-anniversary year of Simpson's work. Insights by experts in the glass world, including William Warmus, Tina Oldknow, Nezka Pfeifer, and others, supply additional views.

About the Publisher

A few years later, Schiffer moved to the basement of a barn on the family's farm property. More than 50 years later, Schiffer Publishing is still an independent publisher of 7,000 titles at the Book Farm in Atglen, PA, where visitors are welcome to browse the library.
