In the Flow Blue International Collectors’ Club we are enthusiastic about our flow blue and mulberry china. Education is an important
part of our mission. We are fortunate to count among our current and past
members the experts in the field. These individuals have spent countless hours
researching, photographing, and otherwise documenting our beloved china. The
fruits of their labors have been the publishing of a number of books beginning
with the three volume set by Petra Williams. Her set of books, published in the
70’s, is still considered to be the bible of flow blue and mulberry collecting.
The following is a list of publications by our members, many featuring the
amazing collections of our membership. It will provide you with an invaluable

This is my new book "Flow Blue." It takes its name from a set of china that traveled with the women in an Irish family from mid 19th century Athlone, to present day Boston along with a flow of depression. It is the story of the trials and tribulations of five generations of women in the same family, their successes and their disappointments.
It is available on Amazon.com in softcover and ePub format. Also, at iBooksmith and Lulu.com
