As a collector of mid-century modern pottery, I purchased a set of Midwinter Pottery's Mexicana dishes designed by Jessie Tait at a local antique store in July. My research led me to Jessie Tait's London obituary and this book which I purchased from Amazon. I loved reading the history of pottery, discovering more about the designers and especially Jessie Tait and perusing the abundant illustrations of the various patterns and styles. This book will convince any collector that they want to see more, know more and find more of Midwinter's abundant designs. What I especially love about this book is that it is very approachable, it is well organized and that it is full of what everyone wants -- PICTURES. I also like the drawings of the various pieces in the different styles produced by Midwinter.
This book is a wonderful reference volume for the lover of mid 20th Century design, and invaluable for the Midwinter enthusiast! The colour photos are exceptional and the patterns are also explicitly described in chronological order. If you even have a passing interest in 50's-60's design, this would be a wonderful addition to your reference library.
This is a good bible for the Midwinter enthusiast. My in-laws have been collecting the Stonehenge Midwinter patterns for years without a reference guide. They'll be thrilled as I was with the chronological history of this company and the pottery they created. Great color photos.
