"Featuring works in Square Word Calligraphy, his whimsical, invented style of writing, The Art of Xu Bing traces the calligrapher's career and provides illustrations and in-depth descriptions of his works, which have been shown from Finland to Australia and the United States. Author and art historian Britta Erickson leads this look into Xu Bing's development as a significant international artist, and Xu Bing himself contributes a chapter on his life and work."--Jacket.
