Format: Hardcover
If you are unfamiliar with Thomas Demand's work it's almost a shame to say something before you look at his work. He works with paper (and I think other materials sometimes) to create scenes that look real. For example, one of his pieces is a simple view of a house looking through tree leaves, but you realize the entire scene is created from cut out paper. Quite amazing.

This hardback book accompanies the exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 2005. There is no dust cover and the work is gorgeously reproduced on nice paper stock.

The book is divided into the following chapters:

Foreword - Glenn D. Lowry
Paper Moon - Roxana Marcoci
Photographic Memory - Jeffrey Eugenides
The Photographs
The Films
Exhibitions and Selected Bibliography

I am interested in dioramas, toy theatres, miniature set design (e.g. Gerry Anderson productions) etc. and I can imagine this title and Demand's work would be of interest to many creative types for a variety of reasons.

Highly recommended.
