Item description for Isamu Noguchi: A Sculptor's World by Bonnie Rychlak...

Description: In my long experience as an intimate witness of Noguchi's work, I believe that whatever the external entities of his coordinate translating may be, they represent a faithful manifest of the intellectual and harmonic being, Noguchi. In my estimation, the evoluting array and extraordinary breadth of his conceptioning realizations document a comprehensive artist without peer in our time. --R. Buckminster Fuller A Sculptor's World is the long-awaited reprint of Isamu Noguchi's 1968 autobiography. It remains Noguchi's most comprehensive statement about the art that brought him international acclaim. Told in words and images, A Sculptor's World is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the life and work of this seminal artist or a general interest in the art of sculpture. Also reprinted in this volume is the original foreword to the book by R. Buckminster Fuller, from which the above quote is taken.

Reviews - What do customers think about Isamu Noguchi: A Sculptor's World?

Noguchi  Jul 30, 2008
I was very happy to find out this book (originally published in '68) had been re-published by another publisher. Wonderful book to know about Noguchi's works and his autobiographical comments for the background.
Insight Noguchi  Sep 10, 2007
This is one beautiful book! Gorgeous reprint, true in form and spirit. A great read too as it is written from Noguchi's point of view and explains his first 42 years. Insightfull. Too bad it was slightly damaged...
all encompasing noguchi - just take your time  Aug 3, 2004
Although I read the first publishing of this book (1968), i can only assume that the most recent printing lives up to the earlier edition. For a student of art, landscape architecture, furniture design, or sculpture this is a wonderful book to have in your collection. Spanning decades, noguchi explains his motives and reasons behind the pieces he so lovingly created. The text can be thick at times, but that is not necesisarily a bad thing. There is a wealth of information to be had; one only has to find it. There are quite a few photographic plates of noguchis work, however they were all in black in white except for a few. This is not necesisarily a bad thing either, as colorful pictures can be easily found on the web or in other (less auto-biographical) books. All in all, noguchi has much wisdom to offer, as long as you have the patience and interest to match the subject matter.
