I've taken this topic off another thread about paperweights which was getting a little mixed up, where Ray said:

i caught the bug off Kev, now i've got about 8-10 book's on paperweights

Can you tell me which books you would recommend, Ray?  And you please, Kev?  

I have the basic Miller's 'Paperweights of the 19th & 20th Centuries' by Anne Metcalfe, 'Paperweights' by Sibylle Jargstorf and 'Paperweights of the World' by Monika Flemming & Peter Pommerencke, plus (of course  :roll: ) 'Paul J. Stankard - Homage to Nature' by Ulysses Grant Dietz.

Are there any others you would particularly suggest I should get?

Thanks   :D

Leni,

As with all other "art forms", buying paperweight books depends on your own current focus. There are books on all sorts of "collectable" weights from all sorts of countries.

I suggest starting at the Sweetbriar Gallery booklist
http://www.sweetbriar.co.uk/booklist.php
They have a good supply, both second-hand and new.

However, other than Pat Reilly's Paperweights, which is an excellent guide (and I'm not just saying that because I know Pat from the Paperweight Club) you already have two of the best books for basics - Jargstorf's and Flemming / Pommerencke's.

Which way do you see your interest developing? Whichever way that goes, there are books to cover it - unless you choose to follow modern English studio work, for which I am not aware of any titles.

Finally, as a new PCC member (when you get your card) have you checked out the PCC diary on the website? Our guest speaker for 11th June is none other than Sibylle Jargstorf.

Have just bought the Reilly and the Selman books on eBay - thanks for the tip-off Ray  :wink:
