ARCHITECTURAL GLASS

In recent years, amazingly few books on contemporary stained glass have come onto the market, and of these hardly any cover specifically secular work. This absence of published material has allowed the myth to continue, even in the architectural world, that stained glass is still primarily a neo-Gothic, ecclesiastical medium. This book sets out to explode that myth. It seeks to create a new image, a new sense of what stained glass is about in the modern world.

Its great to see somebody take notice of the glass intracies found in current day design. Architectural glass has such a variety of applications and more and more designers are involving glass applications in their works. Awesome post and look into the newest glass designs.
