The Organization of Friends of the Dutch Tile Museum has the pleasure to announce the availability of a definitive work The Dutch Tile, designs and names 1570-1930, written by Jan Pluis.

Conceived by a committee of the Dutch Tile Museum and its Friends Organization who saw the need for a systematic method of classifying Dutch tiles, this book will be of great value to everyone - from the humble collector to the great museum - who is interested in Dutch Delftware tiles and an indispensable aid for cataloguing its tile collection (see order details under The Netherlands).
