The book portrays the life of Belgian artist Carl Bergmans, using quotes from letters that he wrote to Belgian author Marie Gevers during their almost 25-year correspondence. The emphasis of the book is on his years in Wisconsin running his ceramics business, the Continental Faience and Tile Company, and covers the manufacturer’s products, processes, and factory, using sources from former employees. Over 80 of the company’s colorful tile installations in Wisconsin and across the country are lavishly illustrated. Authored by Ben Tyjeski, Kelly Dudley, and Kathy Roberts.
