Pages are clean and tight; appears as if unused. Lavishly illustrated with 150 color illustrations of the ceramic mushrooms. " Each piece is modeled by Ernst Lorenzen or his wife, Alma; he does the simpler ones and she does the ones with gills. The couple have worked together for more than 40 years and have modeled more than 180 species. They keep their glazing formulas secret and admit no outsiders to their studio. It takes about 15 days to produce a single mushroom, from clay sculpture to final firing. Unstinting research has gone into duplicating the sometimes brilliant, sometimes subtle colors of mushrooms in the wild: reds, yellows, greens, lilacs, browns and grays."
