Venue

'an essential addition on an art practice, whose legacy continues to influence the work of contemporary artitsts, landscapers, and architects.'

Format: Hardcover
This book is an excellent catalogue of artistic influences with a wide and varying range of works. Here you can find some of the more obscure artists and with interviews at the back of the book you gain a real insight into the work. This book has really helped me with my Art ALevel and I would recommend it to anyone with an open mind.

An excellent collection and commentary! 3 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book should be a permanent reference for all artists including photographers and architects. The timelessness of the projects reflects the timelessness of the book itself. The diversity of projects and their ideas makes a remarkable statement about art and its boundaries.

The Definitive Land Art Book. 26 Oct. 2008
By dream factory - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In the 1960's maverick artists stopped merely representing landscapes and turned to making their mark onto the environment itself. Christo/Claude flew onto the scene with sweeping bravado. And we are familiar with De Maria's surreal 'Lightning Field' and Smithson's iconic 'Spiral Jetty'. By the way thanks to global warming the waters have receeded and the Jetty is back!
This fantastic big book sweeps through more than 100 land artists and their various far ranging methods of impressing upon nature. Captivating large photographs are perfectly wed to the text explaining the process of how the pieces were planned and produced.
There are a fair number of environmemental art books on the market. Leave it to Phaidon to present the best one. . . . . Note; another great one is 'Land Art in the US...' by Malpas.

Good survey of the Land Art movement in its context 19 Jun. 2009
By Michael A. Duvernois - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There are more, and better, images in the Taschen Land Art books, but this is the best source for a serious discussion of the importance and place of the art movement.
