Lovely to search for world renowned artist James Turrell on Amazon to discover Shimmering Zen is keeping good company.
This is just a very beautiful book, in every way. The spectacular quality of the printing, the unsurpassed quality of the paper used- these contribute to the overall feel of something that is very special. Of course, the images are the thing- and Mr. Stanford's use of objects to create his works is novel and brilliant- they seem at the same time very new and also very familiar. You will spend hours looking through this collectible- and you will leave it out on a coffee table for others to see. As a collector of wonderful books, I give this my highest recommendation. Your art book collection will be that much more complete. - Michael Feder
