This hard-to-find hardcover is a retrospective survey of Tony Cragg's sculptures dating from 1970s to present day (mid-90s). Superbly illustrated, full page photographs of Cragg's exceptional works make this book a perfect catalog of his most productive period to date. There is an opening essay written by Germano Celant covering the arc of Tony Cragg's career and alligned to the pages to follow. Expository text provides meaningful insight to Cragg's methods, principles, and ethical concerns. Tony Cragg, it appears, is not only a sculptor of form, but a deep thinker relating formalist concerns to the constructs of nature.
