The heft alone of this book is a testament to the elemental nature of this world-famous artist's large-scale sculptural work. According to Goldsworthy, "Each work grows, stays, decays – integral parts of a cycle which the photograph shows at its heights, marking the moment when the work is most alive. Process and decay are implicit." If you appreciate the forces of/in nature – or don't have the chance to – this book offers that inspirational gift. ~ Reviewed by Heather Bellanca

When you think of Leonardo, think of his drawing of the Vitruvian Man; the perfectly proportioned of a figure in a circle, within a square. This is Leonardo. As Isaacson so eloquently writes, the perfection of artistic endeavor through science was the artist’s true genius. Isaacson's biography is pitch perfect. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan

Escape Artist is a gripping, sad, inspirational and amazing story of being on death row in America's worst prison and, more interestingly, the emotional journey that got Mr. Noguera into prison and how he evolved into a world-class artist and rehabilitated human being.
