If you are aware of other resources, please let me know.
There are two additional books on Thorvald Bindesbøll from the Museum at Koldinghus. One, Thorvald Bindesbøll og sølvsmedene, subtitled Thorvald Bindesbøll and the silversmiths is by museum director, Poul Dedenrouth-
schou. It is richly illustrated with pictures of silver designed by Bindesbøll, and pictures of original drawing pages of his designs.
A second book, Thorvald Bindesbøll En dansk pioner(a Danish pioneer) is a series of papers in Danish, with English summaries, on his various works in architecture, textiles, book design, ceramics, sculpture and silver. This book, too, is richly illustrated.
Both books can currently be had at http://www.abebooks.com
There is also some good information on-line, among other things, an essay by Poul Dedenroth-Schou, Modern Art of Metalwork at http://www.broehan-museum.de/metallw7.htm
Poke around and you will find images of his Carlsberg beer labels and much more.
You may correspond with me.
