From the Introduction: It is best to begin by describing how most of the pictures in this book were made. They were drawn on the bowl of a glass with a steel point held in a tool like a pencil, no acid and no mechanical process coming into it, except that here and there, though very seldom, the same kind of point was held in a slow-revolving drill. The picture is built up mainly of extremely small dots put on at speed by a vibrating hand, and with a pressure perhaps less than that of a pencil on paper, a technique that would be called stippling if the dots did not merge into longer marks and lines, and sometimes into areas scratched or abraded all over, to achieve maximum whiteness. That is to say, whiteness will result when the glass is placed in a good light, falling from behind, against a background that is black or at least shadowy. My aim is to make glass a pictorial medium like canvas or paper.
