Editorial Reviews

Review

"Burning Man: Art on Fire provides a fine authorized collection of some of the amazing art work of the Burning Man annual gathering, collecting the sculptures, art installations, and stories from attendee artists and presenting a gallery of some 200 images representing the best of Burning Man creations. From photos to an aerial-view poster, this pairs full-page color photos with discussions of how each piece was created within the Burning Man festival. From silicon rays that use technology and art to the outer limits of self-expression to the creation of Burning Man temples, this is a fantastic art book packed with full-page color images all paired with discussions and packed into an oversized coffee-table creation accessible to art collections and individual fans of Burning Man culture alike." â?? The Midwest Book Review, California Bookwatch: November 2014



"Burners wait all year to travel to a remote desert where they create stupefying art and build amazing sculpture - then burn it all down a week later. Fortunately, someone took some pictures!" - Paul Reubens (aka Pee-wee Herman)

Thoughtfully written, beautifully photographed, and very illuminating. I have never been to Burning Man, but this book transports me to that remarkable desert place.

This book really captures the experience that most reflects what I go to Burning Man for and recollect afterward, besides the conversations. The text and photos really capture the place in ways I've not seen before in other media. Of all the media that has been produced that tries to explain what Burning Man is, this is the first thing I'd hand to someone that asked me what Burning Man is like to give them a representative sample.

Having missed making my pilgrimage to the annual Burningman festival after partaking a half-dozen times, I've missed it with all my heart and soul: As an adult guy in his 60s, I can honestly say that Burningman continues to be one of those genuine rites of passages and a primal experience celebrating the very best of humanity and creativity. And Jennifer Raiser has made it easier for me not to venture forth into the Black Rock Desert Wilderness by bringing to me her masterful, gorgeous, phenomenal, magnificent and rich color photographs of Burningman to me! That's the second best thing to actually being there! And without the dust! For anyone who has never been but wishes to experience the visual essence of Burningman - this book is a must have! For those of us who have been to Black Rock City but have missed being there in recent years -- Raiser's achievement will help lessen the pain of not returning! She's nailed it!

Photos are top shelf, and the background text helps put it in perspective. An interesting coffee table book.

Last week I had a copy sent to my family in the midwest in order to share with them the reason that I have been enchanted by the burn. For me, it is the art above all else. My first night there in 2007 I watched a crew working at midnight, welding and erecting a huge metal project and said, "That. I'm gonna do that." Two years later I was there with Iron Monkey Arts and Incunabulum. The next two projects we worked on together are in this book. I don't take pictures at the burn and don't keep catalogs of other people's pictures, so this book really helped me show my family what I couldn't explain in words alone. They were appropriately blown away by the wealth of creativity this book contains.

Turned out to be the perfect gift! If you can't go to the festival, photos of the art works will take you there briefly.

If the future species that rises from the ashes of human unsustainability finds only this book to document the essence of our once-thriving civilization, they will have found the best of us.

Or . . . our descendents may one day open this book on a hydrogen-fueled day in the future and see here the under-pinnings of the ethos that turned everything around during the Age of Restoration (1986-2125).
