Spode Transfer Printed Ware , first published in 1983, has now been extensively enlarged and revised, listing and illustrating every known transfer print issued by the Spode family at their Works in Stoke-on-Trent. More than 100 additional prints have been discovered since 1983. Over 350 further illustrations are included, covering the shapes of the ware found decorated with printed designs, Spode marks found on the ware and the methods of manufacture used in the past and those practised today. Many of the 900 illustrations are in colour, and the informative text discusses early ceramic printing techniques such as bat printing and pluck and dust printing. No other manufacturing potter can match the long history of the Spode Works.
