Josh Simpson Glass Artist (third printing) by Andrew Chaikin 9" x 12" hard cover, 159 color photos, 128 pages, Signed by Josh. Josh Simpson Glass Artist gives you photographs showing how his beautiful glass `megaplanets', intricate and astounding, have been inspired by ice, by scenery, and by crystal-clear, detailed, yet strangely unfamiliar views of the earth from space. The close-up photos of Josh's pieces of glass art are startling. You can really see why glass is the most-collected stuff in the world. Andrew Chaikin describes exactly how Josh makes a megaplanet, a challenging process illustrated with some of the most evocative photographs of molten glass you can imagine. That's interesting enough as it is, but the second part of the book, where you can clearly see Josh's artistic imagination at work, and almost hear him talk as he writes in a warm, autobiographical voice, is intriguing. This book comes as close as you can get to being in Josh Simpson's brain and seeing the images in the world which inspire his glass art, and then actually visiting Josh Simpson's studio to see him create it. If you're at all interested in glass art, Josh Simpson Glass Artist is definitely worth reading. From a review by George D. Girton.
