Publisher Comments:

"In my long experience as an intimate witness of Noguchi's work, I believe that whatever the external entities of his coordinate translating may be, they represent a faithful manifest of the intellectual and harmonic being, Noguchi. In my estimation, the evoluting array and extraordinary breadth of his conceptioning realizations document a comprehensive artist without peer in our time." --R. Buckminster Fuller A Sculptor's World is the long-awaited reprint of Isamu Noguchi's 1968 autobiography. It remains Noguchi's most comprehensive statement about the art that brought him international acclaim. Told in words and images, A Sculptor's World is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the life and work of this seminal artist or a general interest in the art of sculpture. Reproduced in 2004 and since out of print, A Sculptor's World is now in its third edition, reprinted by Steidl. This volume will include the original foreword by R. Buckminster Fuller, from which the above quote is taken. In addition, created for this edition, a time line is provided of major events in Isamu Noguchi's life between 1968, when he wrote this autobiography, and his death in 1988.
