Of all the books now available on the life and
work of Ruth Asawa, this one is by far my favorite.
Less on the academic and mumbo-jumbo text and cleanly
told by two authorities, Tiffany Bell and Robert Storr,
this tall silvery volume is high on class and
exquisite throughout with profuse illustrations
chosen wisely for content, chronology and appeal,
never losing sight at how to present an artist to the public
with well fashioned bookmaking design, typography
and profound full page plates of Asawa.
It's a dream.
