Modernt svenskt glas : utveckling, teknik, form, Gregor Paulson, [1943]. CMGL 57972.     

You are welcome to visit our library and examine the glass covers on the two books we own with glass bindings. Take a look at our page on Visiting the Library for more information on using the Library. The library is open to the public and no appointment is necessary, but if you contact us ahead of time, we can be better prepared for your visit. 

There is an additional title which has stained glass embedded in the cover, which I have listed below.  We have other books with glass beads in the spine, glass crystals embedded in the cover, etc., but only the two that I am aware of that have glass bindings. Attached is a bibliography of resources on glass incorporated into books. We don't actively seek to purchase books unless they pertain to the subject of glass, so there might be more books out there with glass covers which we wouldn't have come across as we look for material on our topic. When we acquired Gregor Paulsson's Modernt Svensky Glas, one of the Museum staff posted a blog article about the acquisition here.
