British artist Andy Goldsworthy, known for creating art outdoors and from natural materials, has now built a 2,278-foot stone wall at Storm King Art Center, a sculpture park on the Hudson River in Mountainville, New York. This sensitive and detailed response to the land - former farmland in an area rich in stone walls - is one of his most impressive and important sculptures.
The book's stunning color photographs show the wall from every vantage point and in all four seasons, and document ephemeral work made around it. Kenneth Baker's essay considers the Storm King wall in the context of Goldsworthy's previous work, in particular the other walls he has made in the United States, France, and Britain.

Andy Goldsworthy was born in 1956 in Cheshire, England. His work is regularly exhibited in Britain, France, the United States, Japan, and elsewhere. Although commissions take him all over the world, the landscape around his home in Dumfriesshire, Scotland, remains at the heart of his work. His previous books include Abrams’ Andy Goldsworthy: A Collaboration with Nature, Hand to Earth, Stone, Wood, and Arch. Jerry L. Thompson is a highly regarded photographer who has contributed to a number of books, including Abrams’ Mark di Suvero. Kenneth Baker is an art critic at the San Francisco Chronicle.From Library Journal:
This well-nigh perfect art catalog was produced to record the building of an immense drystone wall at the Storm King Art Center, a sculpture park in New York state. This beautifully photographed and printed book provides excellent insight into the thought processes and working methods used by British artist Goldsworthy to produce his permanent works of stone and wood as well as his ephemeral works of leaves and water. Context is provided by photographs of his other works and the artist's commentary on working in the different landscapes of Scotland, England, and the United States. By examining the completion of this specific commission, the clear and thoughtful essay by critic Kenneth Baker that opens the book, combined with serial photographs of exceptional clarity and the elegant book design, gives the reader a broader understanding of Goldsworthy's work. Highly recommended for all libraries.DDavid McClelland, Philadelphia
