Books & Websites

A list of recommended book titles and websites for further reading. 

Books

 

Titles of bottle related literature that ABC recommends. Highlighted titles are for sale.

 

We have included the main website of BBR publishing who, (although they publish a sister magazine similar to ABC), they do stock a wide range of NEW bottle related publications and often at extremely competitive prices unmatched elsewhere. We can only recommend you do look seriously at any titles they stock.

ABC on the other hand, offers and specialises in the more difficult to find, out of print and sometimes collectable in their own right publications, usually second hand. A list of which will be coming soon below....

(Coming soon)

We are also adding here the link to Willy Van Den Bossche's  Bibliography of Glass...which is a complete listing of all the known bottle and glass related publications which we think readers may find useful.
