5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Crafted 27 Jun 2012
By Louise
The special edition of this book is beautiful. It's hard to photograph architecture in a visually compelling way, but they have achieved this here. With the old fashioned binding, and the images pasted in, this is a wonderful piece of craftsmanship bringing to life the wonderful work of Oscar Niemeyer

5.0 out of 5 stars stunning. 4 Jun 2012
By I. Sherrer - Published on Amazon.com
this book is absolutely BEAUTIFUL.

it MUST be noted that amazon has somehow confused the reviews of this 18lb, 167 page monster of a coffee table book with a different Niemeyer title by the same publisher (released nearly 7 years prior) AND a Niemeyer tome by an entirely different publisher. i'm seeing three reviews of this title and all of them refer to entirely different books.

THIS book is enormous and beautifully constructed, featuring some of the best photography of Niemeyer's work i have seen... so beautiful (and so large) that the publisher released a limited edition $8,500 rosewood book stand to go with it.

for fans of Niemeyer this book is the very best there is.

5.0 out of 5 stars unpublished visions of one the greatest architects of our time 25 Sep 2008
By Edward Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Curves of Time: Oscar Niemeyer Memoirs

exquisite photos of many beautiful, interesting and progressive architectural works. surprising revelations about his politics and friendships in socialism. unexplored criticism and praise for his last 15 years of practice. he is now 100 years old, our last link to the origens of Modern Architecture!

very fine presentation.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed 11 Sep 2007
By MPC Direct Avoider - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
7 and half pages of a boring interview and 37 pages of generic photos is not quite what i would call "a book". Litteraly, that's all there was to it! I was hoping that there would be some discriptions and history behind some of his famous works such as the Museum that's on the front cover. There was a 2 page spread of a terrible photo of the museum and that was it. In fact, all the photos of his works has no discriptions.
VERY disappointing i must say. i don't recommend it. Now have a 6 x 8 inch paper weight collecting dust. How nice!

2.0 out of 5 stars Oscar Niemeyer 28 Jan 2008
By C. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
I have to say I was disappointed in this book. It is small in size and does not do justice to Niemeyer's work with some images spread over two pages making it difficult to see them. There was also hardly any information on either the works or Niemeyer. If you are after some good images and information I would recommend you look at other books rather than this one.
