Editorial Reviews

Review

"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.

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).

Beautiful pictures, great job by photographer Sidney Erthal. This book really transports you to the Burning Man, if you've never been this will make you want to be there.
