A book of 18 full-size prairie style designs for 12" square lampshades. From the Author
This book is the first book of prairie lampshade designs in the stained glass industry and was meant to complement the window designs in "prairie designs for stained glass windows". At the time it was published, there were no prairie style lamp bases in the industry in metal or wood, so the book has instructions for making a base of stained glass. Now there are lamp bases available in wood and metal for these shades. About the Author
