There are shoe people, there are bag people, and there are dish people. This book is the ultimate delight for the latter, with hundreds of patterns organised thematically and annotated with historical details and charming anecdotes. The book profiles iconic manufacturers like Wedgwood, Spode, Homer Laughlin, and more, and features plates by artists and designers from Frank Lloyd Wright to Cindy Sherman to Vera Wang. It's all pulled together into a beautiful little package and - with over 500 pages and 700 photographs - is an incredible value.
