Essays on Sculpture
Focusing on eight books published between 1916 and 1971, this issue of the Henry Moore Institute's journal Essays on Sculpture explores how sculpture has been represented in books.

 Featured is the transcript of a discussion between Lisa Le Feuvre (Head of Sculpture Studies at the Henry Moore Institute) and Fraser Muggeridge, that took place at the 2012 London Art Book Fair, with notes on each publication.

Ranging from Ezra Pound's 1916 Gaudier-Brzeska: a memoir to Frederick Kiesler's 1930 Contemporary art applied to the store and its display, the 1937Circle: international survey of constructive art and Lucy Lippard's 1970 955,000, the selection of books deploys 3-D glasses, texture and varying page weights, multiple views of sculpture, expanding pages and textual descriptions to try capture sculpture on the page.
