"Beginning my studies, the first step pleas'd me so much,
...I have hardly gone, and hardly wish'd to go, any farther,
But stop and loiter all the time, to sing it in ecstatic songs."
- Walt Whitman


We hope our book section will help you begin your studies in stained glass. For those of you with more experience, we encourage you to loiter and sing about it in ecstatic songs. We've worked hard to give you a lot to sing about. Enjoy.
