Look around you! Glass is everywhere: the mirror where you brush your teeth in the morning, the test tube in your science class, and your cup of juice on the dinner table. But what do you really know about it? Where did it all come from? To find out, you have to travel all the way back to ancient Egypt, where glass was first in use. See how the use of glass expanded from small pots, to bottles, to cathedral stained-glass windows, to telescope lenses and more! With illustrations and lots of diagrams. Hardcover.
