Glass Fusing Books
" The best glass fusing books in the world. "
Although there is quite a large selection of glass fusing books, most local bookstores don’t carry any books on the subject.
Your best place to locate and purchase these books is on the internet.
If you are just starting out on your venture into glass fusing, I would suggest that you begin with a book that is easy to understand and has great visual pictures.
Read reviews on the individual book and see if others would recommend the book.
Find out what they liked or disliked the book and why or why not they would recommend the manuscript.
If you purchase a book from an online store, be sure to go back and do a review so that others will benefit from your knowledge.
