There is no item too quirky for collectors, and this book is an amazing reference for those with a passion for figural corkscrews. Il-lustrated with over 900 photographs, this corkscrew compendium includes every imaginable figural representation from bells and bot-tles, to birds and the bawdy, to comics and cartoons.
Arranged alphabetically in categories that include such classifications as anatomy, armory, erotic, forest, maritime, people, pets, and many others, this book is an inclusive and superbly detailed volume. A brief introduction is provided for each collectible cork-screw category and is followed by numerous photographs with captions and prices. The material is comprehensive and presented in Schiffer's typically elegant style.
A big and bold photo-driven reference, this book is a must-have for serious collectors and dealers, and is the perfect companion reference for the author's earlier books: The Ultimate Corkscrew Book, Bull's Pocket Guide to Corkscrews, and Boxes Full of Cork-screws.
