“Warning: this book may induce dish mania,” begins D-Crit instructor and House Beautiful editor Shax Riegler’s globe-trotting, century-hopping celebration of the art of the dinner plate. Published by Artisan Press, Dish: 813 Colorful, Wonderful Dinner Plates, is full of useful tips for collecting, repairing, and storing dishes – as well as a lively history of dishes from the 15th century to the present. From a look inside George and Martha Washington’s pantry, to an appendix of the 100 most popular patterns, “dish mania” is indeed hard to avoid.
