Research and just plain looking
« on: July 31, 2011, 09:39:51 PM »
Hi All - like most of you I have a couple of glass books and a computer and still it ain't easy to find the 'real' beside the dross on the computer and due to the linear state of books it takes time. I often find myself waylaid by a great piece of glass inside the books and more time is consumed.

I  think it would be great if you could buy the murano glass books in ebook format and search within them. I had a look but came up with nothing, anyone seen anything of this type or know of a project to digitise what are expensive, often out of print reference books?
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.
