User Review  - cappyk -

Required for my college ceramics class. Lots of good information to refer to. Would recommend for the serious ceramics student. Beautiful Jacket allows it to also become a coffee table book. Very Large. Very Heavy. You will not be taking this one back and forth to school. Read full review
