The construction of this book is gorgeous.
I have always found Eva Hesse's personal thoughts insightful. She dealt with so many memories from her past and I have always been interested in learning more about her process regarding her conceptual development. The pictures and scans of her sketchbooks are beautiful. Please enjoy the information this book contains. I just wish this was collaborated with her journals more closely.

Overall an excellent exposition and survey of Hesse' s drawing practice. A couple of the included essays are plastered with artspeak so thick that it becomes ludicrous; others examine Hesse's work with intelligence and refreshing clarity. The abundant illustrations and examples of the artist's visual thought process are the real heart of the book, and worth looking at again and again. ...more

I am very excited about this book. Eva Hesse is one of my favorite artists and I know close to nothing about her- except her tragic death. The reproductions are fantastic and most I have never seen. I know this is going to be top notch.

It's interesting to see Hesse's drawings and compare them to the actual sculpture. This book is full of working drawings and sketches from Hesse's journals, giving you an intimate look at her process. I think most anyone would agree that Eva Hesse was a pioneer in the world of conceptual art. ...more
