All too often, the talent behind wondrous sets and costumes, in advertising and in films, goes unrecognized, although rewards flourish in such high-visibility contests as the Grammies, the Oscars, and the Tonys. Ishioka, well known in her native Japan, will achieve more international fame with the publication of her second book (the first being Eiko by Eiko , 1983). She dissects the beginnings and realizations of her art in nine forms, ranging from a four-night-only performance of a Japanese opera to her millennial movie, The Cell . Hallmarks soon become apparent: literal visual metaphors (the anatomical diagram of an arm for David Copperfield's Broadway magic show); minimalism, as in Hwang's M. But terfly; and a sinuosity cloaking bodies in The Cell and The Ring of the Nibelung . Color photographs do much of the talking--and more than adequately pay homage to Eiko's art. Barbara Jacobs
