"This fascinating collection of Moore's written and spoken words is the most comprehensive to be compiled and contains much previously unpublished material. It includes over 150 illustrations: photographs of the sculptures, drawings and prints discussed in the text, illustrations of works by other artists, and photographs of the sculptor and his environment at various stages of his life." "Henry Moore Writings and Conversations completes and complements the catalogues of Moore's sculpture, drawings and prints. It will be indispensable for scholars and engrossing reading for Moore enthusiasts worldwide."--Jacket."
