From Library Journal:

Ninety-year-old Japanese American artist Isamu Noguchi is one of the most important sculptors of this century. Blending Asian and Western styles in his art, Noguchi has produced an incredible range of works-from large public pieces to coffee tables and set designs. This well-written volume has been carefully compiled by the director of the Noguchi Garden Museum in Long Island City, New York. The sharp illustrations include a wide variety of the artist's output while the text, which follows Noguchi's career, elucidates the development of his oeuvre. Altshuler (coauthor of Isamu Noguchi: Essays and Conversations, Abrams, 1994) provides a very useful chronology, a list of public collections in which the artist's work appears, and an informative bibliography. An essential purchase for every public and art library.
