Thank you for taking the time to visit my website which is all about two great books I have written about the Blue Willow Pattern, which looks at the unusual ways in which the Blue Willow Pattern has been used in advertising over the last two centuries - for everything from airlines to dinner sauce.


Should that garner your interest, then both books, titled. Advertising A To Z  Featuring The Blue Willow Pattern (Parts 1 & 2) may be obtained from Amazon. Just click on the SHOP button below.

This is a great book and a must-have for any willow collector. So often, we think of willow as just being china or pottery. But there is much more to this pattern than dishes in the kitchen. Sykes does a great job with this second book (get the first one, too) exploring how the willow pattern was used in advertising over the decades. You will be surprised where this centuries-old pattern has popped up. Enjoy!

But, what I truly enjoyed (with both books) are the featured pieces, personal insights and extensive historical background information. These books are not only an essential component of a Willow collectors library, but also encompass other collecting passions, e.g., railroad, military, presidential, music, etc.
