Simon Whistler's magnificent collection of engraved glass. Simon Whistler, foreword by Christopher Booker. Libanus Press, Marlborough, 2004. This book contains Simon Whistler's own choice from his collected work as a glass engraver, in a career spanning fifty years. The works cover from his early engravings supervised by his father (Laurence Whistler) to the church windows and highly accomplished works. Illustrated throughout. This copy is in very good condition, but there is a crease to the bottom corner of the front cover that travels a few pages in. However, this does not detract from the contents.
On a Glass Lightly Paperback – 1 Sep 2004. by. Simon Whistler (Author).
Simon wondered if he had measured up to the genius of his father - who was in turn haunted by the brilliance of his own brother, the painter Rex Whistler, who lived fast and died young, killed in action in 1944. The style of the father and son was very similar, and they occasionally worked together on commissions, to be seen in churches, municipal buildings, college collections, museums and private collections all over the country: lettering crisp as frost, landscapes, buildings, the spirals of music in which the musician son excelled, floating in glass. T hen he wrote a strange and fascinating book, On A Glass Lightly (2004), part memoir, part catalogue of a lifetime in glass. He described it as a rite of passage, a one-sided continuation of a lifelong conversation with his father. It seems strange that it has been done in his absence, so he couldn't answer back," he told me in December 2004.

Simon Whistler embodies the spirit of the do-it-yourself writer. His books teach other authors the DIY process he used for audiobooks and self-publishing on a budget. In our interview, Simon told me that he’s working on a third book in the for Indies series.
