BOOKS AND MAGAZINES
http://www.antikonline.de  Guenther Staffa, in Germany, has become my indispensable source for books on Czech and Art Nouveau Glass. Check his site out to find out what is new.  A bit expensive for us folks in the USA, but what the heck, it's worth it, since this material is totally unavailable here.

http://www.antiquexplorer.com  The antiques magazine America needs but does not have . . . since it appears in the UK!  But you can get it through E-Bay.
