I am sending a bibliography of articles about the Blaschkas and their techniques. Their techniques were closely guarded, so little is known about them. Our library has the Blaschka's archives and so far there are few clues.

The article by Susan Rossi Wilcox (former curator of the Harvard flowers) about their workbench is excellent. I will send a photocopy to you.

I will also attach lists of other articles, books and catalogs that may be of interest to you.

If you wish to obtain copies of any of these items, please contact your local library. The Rakow Research Library is a member of the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC); your library can contact us through OCLC or they may mail an Interlibrary Loan form to us. You may request up to five items at a time. We send photocopies of articles and microfiche copies of our books (if they have been microfilmed) through Interlibrary Loan for four weeks use.

Of course, you are welcome to come to Corning and use the resources of the Rakow Research Library. We encourage you to call ahead to let us know when you plan to arrive and your area of interest. While an appointment is not requirement for use of the library, it will help us to be better prepared to meet your research needs and to have preliminary materials ready upon your arrival. Please contact us at

Please let me know if I can provide additional information.
