Great pictures and information. Designs are inspiring

Although this book is 6 years old it remains my favourite of all the Clarice Cliff books and there are now MANY available on her now. It tells Clarice's story thoroughly, with far more archive images than any other book, and great colour pictures of pieces from collectors from all over the world. The author interviewed nearly all the surviving paintresses who worked for her between 1927 and 1964 and this shows in the attention to detail about them, life in the 1930s and individual patterns they painted. There are many quotations from Clarice in the book and these give a "flavour" of her as a person. I'm prompted to write this review for newer collectors or Clarice fans who might be confused over the best book to start with, but in my opinion THIS is it, and at a very good price too. Barry

This is a wonderful book of colorful art deco designs. I enjoy just looking at the pictures over and over. Lots of history of the artist and some pictures of Clarice Cliff, too. I get a lot of ideas for my art work when looking at the vases and dishes. It is amazing to think that one person was so imaginative and original at that time. Love this book!
