Comments: Book contains Tiffany postcards-no stained glass patterns Great Tiffany postcards. However, I thought I would be getting Tiffany stained glass patterns. The title is misleading, and the contents were a huge disappointment. A better description, or the words "postcards" in the title would be helpful. I'm sure I'm not the first one this has happened to.

Comments: Unfortunately, no colour chart for many patterns! This book is a wonderful idea. Unfortunately, most of the patterns do not have a colour chart and it makes it impossible to guess whether a piece of glass should be leaf or sky or bloom from the shape. Given the time and effort that would be required to complete these patterns in stained glass, not to mention the $$$ expense, I refuse to do suc risky guesswork.

Comments: The colorized images are attractive There are 60 designs, with 16 color images on the front and back cover. The line drawings are difficult to determine the color of glass to use.

Comments: great projects If you are into doing windows in the style of Tiffany you need this book...lots of beautiful patterns which can be enlarged at your local copy center. There are color illustrations of many of the patterns which should help in selecting glass but, as usual, the actual glass selection is up to you. It would be nice if all the glass used was specifically identified (mfgr., cat. no., amount needed, etc.), but hey, then we wouldn't have all the fun (?) of agonizing over the selection.

Comments: Some Reviews are Misleading This book does contain Tiffany window designs which Tiffany created using Tiffany glass not modern glass. They reproduce very well when scanned. I use them in computer application of the designs. The book which has the postcards is "Tiffany Stained Glass Windows" by Alastair Duncan (ISBN: 0486253368)which I also bought. This book does have some colored images and when combined with the Duncan Postcards you can produce some nice images. Fifteen or sixteen of the postcards are images that are also in this book. I would suggest buyers consider getting them both.
