Finally, more than just a handful of images of JAR's work finally collected into a single volume that most people can afford. Unless you have $1,400 to spend on that other two-volume set, I don't know of any other substantial print collection of the artist's work.
It's a very limited look at JAR's portfolio, in a small format. The images used aren't always the highest quality, and the angles at which pieces were photographed are often odd and don't allow you a full view of the piece, which can be frustrating. I've seen much better illustrations in auction catalogs.
Regardless, if you're a fan of JAR, you'll have to have this book, simply because, for most people, it's the only option. The day after it was released, it was already "temporarily out of stock" - and given the high level of interest in JAR's work , I'm sure it won't be available for long, and will become a sought after collector's item.
Until I can convince myself that the other thousand-dollar books are a worthwhile investment, this will have to do.
Truly, I have never seen anything like these oh-so-precious witticisms both in terms of design and craftsmanship.
My only criticism (well, there are two), is that it wasn't long enough and the book was smaller than expected-about 9" x 9". Even so, I'm glad to have it, having been wait-listed for almost a year on the original book only to have my order cancelled, after which the price sky-rocketed into the thousands-of-dollars stratosphere.
A fabulous addition to any collection!
I was hoping for a much larger coffee-table book with a wider selection of objects.
However, the book has a medium-size square shape, and housed in a thick cardboard sleeve.
The photographs are generally good but needed more light and different angles.
All the pieces are set against a black background which works fine for some pieces but not quite effective with others.
However, given that this book is the only available account on Jar that is reasonably priced, then I can't complain that much. Glad to have the book and would recommend it.
Then add the quality and workmanship, and you have a piece Museum worthy.
I have followed his career and seen him finally get the attention he deserves.
He is a genius living in our time! And the book reflects it. If you feel you need to
see more, there is a huge collection in a more comprehensive book of his work.
Worth the price, indeed!!
