About this title

Synopsis:

This text provides a survey of the work of Christo and his wife, Jeanne-Claude, who specialize in creating art on a monumental scale: they have taken on landscape projects in the US, Japan and Australia and, in June 1995, they wrapped the Reichstag building in silvery fabric and blue cable.

About the Author:

Wolfgang Volz has worked with Christo and Jeanne-Claude as the exclusive photographer of their works since 1971. He was also project director (with Roland Specker) for Wrapped Reichstag and (with Josy Kraft) for Wrapped Trees, and was in charge of The Wall - 13,000 Oil Barrels, 1999. His close collaboration has resulted in many books and more than 300 exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world.

Jacob Baal-Teshuva, born 1929, is author, critic and independent curator of museum shows. He studied at the Hebrew university in Jerusalem and the New York University. His numerous publications include works on Marc Chagall, Alexander Calder, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol and Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Jacob Baal-Teshuva lives and works in New York and Paris.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
