This new volume by and about the sculptor and pioneer land artist Richard Long explores his work from the 1990s to the present day. Long's ability to make works of physical and intellectual beauty in both outdoor and indoor spaces is unrivaled, and this new journey takes the reader around the world: to the Sahara Desert and down the Rio Grande, from coast to coast in Ireland and Spain, to Tierra del Fuego and Mongolia, and to the forests of Honshu in Japan.
Majestic museum pieces made from tons of rock are juxtaposed with dramatic mud works and with photographs recording ephemeral sculptures often made in remote wilderness. Most of the photographs were taken by the artist himself, and the book also includes his own notes and writings.
