Thanks Della. Appears NOT to be in English so I am wondering how much use the book will be to me.

Sorry, I've been really busy.  Unless this book has been re-written in the last few months, and it looks exactly like mine on the site Adam linked to, then it's pretty much all in Finnish.

There's a small Finnish-English dictionary at the back and a blurb in English, but all descriptions, price, colours etc are in Finnish.  However, this book is excellent for checking the drawings (not photos) to see who designed what.  It covers: Alvar Aalto, Kaj Franck, Saara Hopea, Gunnel Nyman, Timo Sarpaneva, Nanny Still, Helena Tynell & Tapio Wirkkala.

Email me on my 'email button' below and I'll help further.

Thanks Max

I have no problem with it being in a different language, it's just getting it that holds a problem to me LOL

Pat I have posted a thread in 'Glass' asking if anyone can translate the sites buying page for me, I have sent them an email in the meantime

The book is £27.00 with free post I think it is saying - not bad

And they have many other highly recommended books at good prices

Meanwhile anyone who knows of an English site that has as many good out of print and hard to find glass books - please post

Here is a link to a web page with the order form in English.  This website has also some sample pages of the book (in English and Finnish).
