Publisher: New York, Harry Abrams:

Edition: Presumed First

Seller ID: 27787

Condition: Fine


This is without question one of the most unique art books we've ever had. The author was/is a medical doctor, so what he has created is a fusion of science, pattern, and color to reach a new look at what can be called art.

It's a very heavy book and in beautiful condition -- the only "fault" is a gift inscription written on a blank page at front. The art is simply the "stuff" that MAKES it the stuff. Wolberg sorted his subjects into these categories: vegetable, animal, mineral and familiar objects. Under ... View more info
