Tile Heritage - A Review of American Tile History Vol X No.2, has been printed and distributed to members and friends of the Foundation around the country, and to some extent, abroad ( where mailing is currently, safely possible.)

TH Review is one of the best, fundamental tools that the Foundation produces that reflects the core of its ongoing mission. Its production is underwritten by Sponsors, Members, Advocates, Supporters and the public at large. We are very appreciative of the voluntary writing of the current contributing tile historians, Michael Sims and Victoria Jenssen, and the editorial skill, love and care at the heart of the publication and at the heart of Tile Heritage.

INFORMATION THAT IMPACTS THE AMERICAN TILE INDUSTRY!
… A DECISION that impacts American Tile Manufacturers and the Art Tile Makers in America! Recently shared by Eric Astrachan of TCNA . . .
"As you may have heard, the United States International Trade Commission (USITC) ruled on April 30th that the ceramic tile industry “is materially injured by reason of imports of ceramic tile from China that the U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce) has determined are subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value.” ….Thanks to the efforts of the eight companies that brought this action, and their many supporters, members small and large will benefit. We hope the imposition of the duties we described will help our tile-manufacturing members flourish. We wish you and all our members great success and health . . . .
