"Beginning Glassblowing" (120 pages) is still available from Glass Mountain Press and the Author: Ed Schmid for $24.95

"Advanced Glassworking Techniques" (320 pages) costs $32.95 ea. and has more info than you know what to do with (for a little while anyway).

and the newly completed "Glassworkers Bathroom Reader" (272 pages with many contributors from this board in it) costs $24.95 ea. Lots of fun reading about the life and times of the aspiring glass artist/junkie.

You pay for the shipping.

For anyone just starting out, or looking for tricks of the trade, these books are an absolute must. It is never wise in my opinion to put off buying things like this. Sometimes they disappear when you thought they would be here forever. I can cite "The Schedules" by Grahm Stone and the Thuringen Practical Glass Recipes by Finn Lyngaard and Volfs "Chemical Approach to Glass as being books that vanished as fast as they came into existence and are incredible resources.

Act Now!- even though Ed seems to be doing jes fine.
