What is the general view on this book?  It is kind of pricey, so I'd rather ask other's opinions.  Thanks for your feedback if you have any!

I believe it is mostly related to black and white portraits.

I may be wrong, as that is from memory when I was looking up some books a few days ago.

No George, this book includes 156 inside-painted bottles from the old master and is not limited to portraits.

For portrait bottles, I think you are referring to Reflected Glory In A Bottle by Emily Bryne Curtis.

Thanks for the info! Do u believe it is worth its price, Richard?  Seems like it cant be found under $110 USD (plus the high shipping charges and potential import/vat taxes for me here).

Hi Pat

If you are looking for a book devoted purely to the old master, I think this is a good choice.
