Czech Glass, 1945-1980: Design in an Age of Adversity, the catalog from a blockbuster museum exhibit, is the ultimate source for both photographs and information about the important Czech glass and glassmakers of the country's communist period (Arnoldsche Art Publishers, Stuttgart, Germany, c2005, 448 pages). The modern designs are unlike any created in glass before. Czech artists working in glass were able to create abstract designs that the government would not allow in the fine arts. This is an excellent reference book about artistic glass that is relatively unknown in the United States. It is sold with two CD-ROMs, one of Czech glass design drawings in the Corning Museum and the other the book's text in German. The exhibit will be at the Corning Museum of Glass until November 27, then will move to the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington, from January 14 to June 18, 2006.
