From the Inside Flap:

Here at last is a book that truly captures all the joy, all the exuberance, all the spirit of Alexander (Sandy) Calder and his unique art.

Calder is surely the most beloved artist of the twentieth century--as well as a major figure in the history of modern sculpture. Calder invented the mobile and the stabile; he was endlessly creative at making drawings, jewelry, toys, and household objects; and he made a miniature circus that is treasured by children of all ages.

Sandy Calder has been appreciated as much for his witty and playful personality as for his artistic genius. Now aspects of both the man and the artist are captured in a beautifully produced book created especially for young readers.

Alexander Calder and His Magical Mobiles presents a treasury of favorite works by Calder, forty of them in full color, as well as many fascinating photographs of the artist at work. There is also a sequence of photographs that can be flipped to show a mobile in motion. The delightful text tells the story of Calder's life and career, and relates--often in the artist's own words--his working methods and his own feelings about his art. The book also includes a guide to many of the Calder sculptures that can be seen in museums and public spaces around the world.

About the Author:

Mrs. Lipman is the author three Calder books and was the editor of Art in America magazine for thirty years, then editor of publications at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
