This stunning new book, arranged alphabetically by subject areas, captures the essence of the successful Flint Faience Tile Company's highly diversified production between 1921-33 in Flint, Michigan. The history of this ceramic tile company, its major designers, and the designs and styles of its products are woven throughout a tapestry of more than 825 color photos illustrating both rare and popular tiles. Showcased are Art Deco and Arts & Crafts style tiles, animal and nursery rhyme designs, geometric motifs, plants and flowers, dramatic murals, and much more. Many sections feature photo documentation of these collectible tiles installed in homes, schools, churches, restaurants, swimming pools, and more. Present day values are provided in the captions. This fascinating and informative A to Z collector's book is a valuable addition to the library resources of any tile and ceramics collector or maker.
