MEDIA REVIEWS

"This stunning monograph, the first collecting the work of artist and writer de Waal... Functions like a poem, measuring off de Waal's work from the world it lives in, and finding in that partitioning the boundless potential of a simple pot."-Publishers Weekly

"This April sees the publication of a deluxe monograph on de Waal's work by Phaidon Press, which, in place of the usual impenetrable art speak, includes eloquent contributions by such writerly types as AS Byatt, Colm Toibin, and Peter Carey."-Departures

"Emma Crichton-Miller contributes a graceful, sympathetic biographical introduction, the clearest account of de Waal's career so far. The book is... in full accord with de Waal's own aesthetic: a beautiful piece of work in its own right, to be cherished."-David Sexton, Evening Standard

"In words, and through Toby Glanville's fine photographic essay, Edmund de Waal presents an image of the artist as a uniquely gifted wunderkind."-TLS - Tanya Harrod

"This book evokes serenity." -Tomas Maier, Esquire
