Individual chapters provide an explanation of how Carnival was made. Many hundreds of patterns are covered, over 500 of which are explored in detail. There is a fresh look at the major and minor manufacturers of Classic American Carnival and the relationships amoung them. Carnival glass from around the world, fascinating and revealing catalog information, and many unique insights into aspects of Carnival previously unexplored.
