    "Scottish artist Andy Goldsworthy uses a seemingly infinite array of purely natural materials, from snow and ice to leaves, stone, and twigs in the creation of his one-of-a-kind sculptures. All of his materials return to nature leaving behind only the photos in this book." A stunnin...

    Beautiful art that is all about non-attachment, process instead of product, letting go. I also love Rivers and Tides, a film about how Goldsworthy creates his art. ...

    My kids are ooohh-ing and aaahh--ing behind me right now looking at the amazing art photographs in this book. We want to try to do some of this art. Amazing and beautiful stuff! NOTE: If you can get your hands on a DVD called Andy Goldsworthy: Rivers and Tides, get it and watch it. ...

    This amazing artist makes temporary, site-specific sculptures using snow, soil, leaves, stone, water and such transitory materials, that photographs are the best record of the work. And the photographs are extraordinary. Search YouTube: there is an hour and a half documentary that we ...

    Ok, so I didn't really "read" this. But loved the pictures, although the quality of the photographs leaves something to be desired. I hate modern art, or installations, but these go beyond into the realm of the truly beautiful. I love this guys work. It is beyond amazing. Folks that re...

    Fascinating. The intricacy of the work here as well as what patience it must take to assemble pieces like this--the mind boggles. ...

    This artist creates his work using what's around him and then dismantles or lets it return to nature. This book lets you in on his thought and creation process. ...

    Goldsworthy creates quirky art from natural objects with infinite patience and originality. I've never seen an artist do the stuff he does. He makes ice spirals that defy gravity; tracks of leaves through the forest,pinned to earth with pine needles, and choosing sizes and colors that ...

    ...fantastic book - one of my faves - Andy is truly an EcoSpirit - from what I know of his works, he takes nothing from nature, only harmonizes with it - just as the Native Americans would [ the original 'EcoSpirits'] ...some of my favorite works by him are in this hardback - Do read h...

    I discovered Goldsworthy soon after reading both Gaston Bachelard?s The Poetics of Space and Robert Grudin?s Time and the Art of Living. They make a beautiful trio together, recommended for an inspiring experience. ...

    Very cool. Very distinctive not only in the visual style and how the artist goes about creating his work, but also in how the readers can view and interact with nature through his work via the little comments such as the sculpture was nibbled on by ducks, driven over by a tractor, melt...

    I never knew the true power of art before i came to know Andy Goldsworthy's work. His work is honest and simple in such an ingenious way that i never imagined was possible. The way he immerses himself in nature is as profound as Bibhutibhushan's Aranyak. After knowing his work, I find ...

    An unbelievably beautiful book. It is diffucult to believe that the artist achieves such spectacular results using only natural materials. The photose in the book are serene. I did not suspect that rotten birch or elder wood can be so beautiful. Goldsworthy makes one see nature's brigh...

    You know, I thought art wasn't for me. I like art museums, but they don't fascinate me like they do for some people. I appreciate the effort and the vision of art in general, but I've never really connected. Turns out I was just waiting for Andy Goldsworthy to come into my life. ...
