This book I enjoyed Looking thru very much ..being a Designer myself, I enjoyed seeing many iconic Lamps and some that were new to me. I also will use this book for reference in my own lamp/lighting designs.Next on my list is Volume #2. Women always saw you can never have enough Shoes ..Well......Same goes for Books and Designers ..

A must for any interior design or art history book collection. This is a great and really neat book.

well written book covering subject of lamps over a period of time. great photos.there is a second companion book that covers more modern lamps
