    Mary Miss, Daniel M. Abramson
As sculptor, draughtsman, photographer, and environmental artist, Mary Miss straddles the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, and installation art. Her work moves from the urban bustle of New York, to the vast plains of the American Midwest, to the remote forests of Finland, and has been acclaimed worldwide for its poetry and power. Designed in association with the artist, this exquisitely produced monograph, a comprehensive overview of Miss's work, features thirty-five color images and over 150 duotone photographs of her projects accompanied by copious drawings by the artist. Architectural historian Daniel Abramson-who has been granted unparalleled access to the artist and her archives-addresses each of her projects in detail. An introduction by the well-known art critic Eleanor Heartney situates Miss in the context of contemporary movements in art. Architecture critic Joseph Giovannini places her work within contemporary design practice. Together, the text and images of Mary Miss provide a remarkable look at the work of this groundbreaking public artist.
