The Corning Museum of Glass, in association with Yale University Press, recently published the book René Lalique: Enchanted by Glass. Exploring Lalique’s distinguished career, this volume illuminates the vision and mastery he brought to his art. Lalique’s innovative work in glass elevated the medium and embodied the art nouveau and art deco movements of the twentieth century. 

Produced by Marquand Books and designed by Susan E. Kelly, the book features more than 463 full-color illustrations. With essays by Kelley Jo Elliot and contributions by Karol Wight, Tina Oldknow, and Elizabeth Everton, Enchanted by Glass celebrates Lalique’s striking, beautiful objects.
