Spectacle editado por Phaidon


"Spectacle offers an impressive visual tour of over 60 spectacular events that take place around the world."-The Architect's Newspaper "This is a book of happy spectacles. Rockwell and Mau (Spectacle has Mau's imaginative boldness and strong sense of display written all over it) have created a smart book with heft and beauty, and much information useful to designers and fans of the public entertainments, rituals and happenings that so enchant us."-Azure "Packed with 200 color photographs and interviews with award-winning authors, producers, directors, and performers - from Muhammad Ali to Steve Wynn-these authorities of the grandiose explain how such `shared, live experiences' shape the way that we see the world, the way we interact with it, and how we interact with each other."-Desert Living "Architect David Rockwell doesn't just think big-he thinks spectacular."-The New York Sun "Spectacle by David Rockwell and Bruce Mau is a smallish book on a biggish subject."-The New York Times "An extraordinarily informative, entertaining, and inspiring book."-Passport "Slickly designed, with full-page color photographs of more than 60 such spectacles from around the world (including the Burning Man festival), the monograph serves the dual needs of armchair travelers, offering vicarious journeys alongside provocative ruminations on the underpinnings of the events."-San Francisco Bay Guardian "Stunning... Fascinating."-Gay Times

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
