Overall if you are looking for images of head vases and prices this is an perfect reference book. It is organized by size of the head vase and present a lot of various manufacturers. This is not a amazing reference if you are looking for the history and story of head vases since it is comprised of mostly images with descriptions.
Ok, this application has a amazing idea and I would have really given a amazing rating if it just didnt automatically send you to the editing screen whenever you actually clicked on your knife to see its details. For such a easy application, ts a teensy bit overprised. My suggestion? Create the app simpler to use, dont use fancy words like "disposition" or "exposition" just say something like "got at". As for the rest lf the tabs, they could be a .ittle easier to understand too. There are a few other problems but other than that, this has REALLY GOOD potential. I would love to see it take on a few improvements as it would be one of the best catagoring softwares to have for knife cataloging. But for now, as it is now, i wouldnt reccomend it, thats my private answer.
A amazing first version. This is a amazing first shot at creating a mobile application to extend the full desktop software. After more features are added, it will become even more useful to collectors. I have been using the PC ver for more than 10 years now with amazing results and I appreciate the efforts of this developer. After install, it took a very long time to load my data onto my tablet. I eventually had to reset the app, but it looks like all the data came over just fine. I do have a lot of pictures in my collection, so it may have caused a hangup. I have only spent a short time testing with it so far, but it looks amazing & has a lot of potential. I would like to request some list filters, like hide Sold items, only present C&R/not C&R, present all pistols, etc. Or maybe a method to setup filters so the dev doesn't have to build a bunch. These would be amazing for showing/viewing/working with certain parts of a collection.
It is ok. Yes, it is free to play; however... To be able to use primary features, like to auction an item, you have to pay to play. If you wish to collect retired sets, you will most likely have to pay to play. There is like 10 various stores; but to access more than 4, you again, must pay to play. I overall don't have a issue throwing money at devs. Just saying that you can play and collect everything for free when it isn't entirely true; is a bit misleading. Which I don't agree with trying to skirt the truth on video test because of wanting more coin; and hoping people will be hooked and feel compelled to buy-in rather than be upset and drop the game. Doesn't mean I won't play every so often, just means I won't throw cash their way.
Played when it first started in 2008. Was away along time. No point in playing unless you pay 10.00 per month for xl. Fliprat is so poor now cant victory cards to sell or credits. So a lot of are leaving because its so poor now. Will be quitting soon again cant afford it.
The info contained the book was helpful. However, I have learned that marble "dealers" are not very forthcoming with info in books nor online. You have to go to the shows, in person, to sell, from what I have learned. As one dealer stated, by the time the book is published the info is obsolete.
I love the format of having various people's opinions from the industry. At one point, you are reading a gallerist bash a collector only to read that very same collector's stance on how he collects (and more importantly sells) 100 pages later. After reading this book, I feel much more confident about how I wish to begin building a collection.
I bought this book thinking it would be more of a price guide. It really isn't. It is more of an education on teapot history and collecting. It has some helpful information and I am not sorry I bought it but if you are looking for a price tutorial or a book on makers marks, hold looking. If you are looking for an education on teapot shapes, history, ceramics and how to spot fakes then this book is excellent for you.
Primary functionality Would have loved some more features and customising of layout. NO field for optics. No field for accessories. No indication of action type. Cannot upload pictures. Keeps returning error regardless of file type or size. Have also experienced some stability problems on Android device and then it deletes the latest entry I was editing
I'm so satisfied this android game is a application now!!!! I've been playing for years since 2008 or 2009 when it was just a Fb game. It's amazing for a introvert like myself you can literally play for hours. The satisfaction you feel from finding a card you've been searching for to complete a set is the best feeling. Very addicting!!!
My wife got this for Christmas and was really thrilled with this book. She has been collecting "german swirls" for 30 years and we have a lot of of those. This book provides amazing detailed pictures and descriptions of the process used to create these remarkable craft pieces. She thought that there was various explanations in this book from some others she has, but the differences were really minor. Also, she thought in some cases the values seemed to be extremely high; yet, we both thought that that could be the effect of the marble being reviewed by the author vs ones we have seen of a related type. Quality is always the key! A amazing book for a marble collector.
Any collector of contemporary art should buy this one. Adam Lindeman has done a superb job of pulling together commentary from a lot of of those who are generally recognized as among today's most influential curators, dealers, collectors and critics. We rarely obtain to hear from a lot of of these people, yet their consensus is what makes the art shop and, for those of us who have been observers for a lot of years, that consensus is sometimes difficult to ere are just enough pictures of works, all in color, to provide a backdrop to what is largely a book devoted to a monologue by each expert. Obviously a curator may have a various viewpoint from a dealer; collectors and critics offer further insights. Reading what each has to say from their different perspectives allows us to reach our own, more informed conclusions.Would be a five-star rating but the format appears to be a standard list of questions submitted to each respondent with the answers then edited by Lindeman to fit the available space. An interactive format between author and respondent would have allowed some required follow-up. We also don't hear from art globe figures who were most signficant ten years ago, or, in a related effort twenty years ago, de Coppet's The Art Dealers. The perspectives of those interviewed in de Coppet's book regarding today's art stage would be can hardly talk about collecting today without talking about valuations, and we note that several of Lindeman's participants question the prices currently being paid at auction for some younger artists, such as a million dollars for a Yuskavage when the same cash will buy you a powerful Close; more for a Glenn Brown than for the Frank Auerbach from which it is derived. The reader is left to reach his or her own conclusions. Still, you have to wonder, given the observations of several figures in the book that you can look at a 20-year old problem of ArtNews and you will not have heard of most of the artists featured: what are the different motivations of those "collecting contemporary" today?
I bought this kindle ver as I was not sure I would wish to pay the price of the book. Having recently become interested in Carpet ball / bowls, this book kept coming up in a Google search, I was able to review it quit extensively before purchasing the E-Book version. It had a amazing deal of info about Scottish Carpet ball or bowls, including perfect pictures of authentic and reproduction balls. The reproduction was my main concern, and seeing the patterns that were reproduced etc. was very ter seeing the pictures of the China marbles I am totally hooked on the painted ones as well.Everything about this book is very informative, the reproduction sections are particularly of interest and value. The pictures are awesome and clear. I have just purchased the paper published version, to go with the Kindle version. I would recommend this to anyone interested in antique marbles or carpet balls. I is the only book I have found that covers the topic enough to create a informed purchased.
While not a price guide-- as noted by the prior reviewer-- this book is perfect at identifying prevailing trends and major problems on the minds of voters over the years. Campaign slogans and happenings are selected with the advantage of 20/20 hindsight in the history books yet buttons dermonstrate what the average Joe placed value upon during each cycle.
This unbelievable book by Dana Cain makes an perfect addition to any kaiju library. The full color photos are of perfect quality and the pages are on slick paper. In the Internet age the price tutorial feature of any book like this will unquestionably be of limited use. The true value is in the collection of images, collectibles, models, novelties, toys, art, old movie posters and oddities collected in the volume. Kaiju from the Godzilla as well as the Gamera franchise are included. There is a little section on kaiju fandom including the G-Fest, an overview of the primary movie franchise, glossary of creatures and an illustrated chronological filmography. English language books on kaiju are slowly becoming more commonplace, for a lot of years they were a rarity. To have one written and produced by a woman is a welcome development. This is an perfect volume and is lots of fun!!
Played when it first started then could not obtain on with the changes now am back. Unless I am missing something I can not see where u can obtain fresh mates or ask for friends. I miss that as I had amazing mates before that helped me, now it is just lonely old me
