The book begins with a statement from Schnabel and then, without the normal "introduction" or "essay by distinguished gallerist," plunges into the pictures. The sequencing makes quite a bit of sense. Somehow. Along the way one encounters outrageously shabby b&w photographs of Schnabel, bits of Schnabel handwriting which illuminate and confuse matters, and many images of Schnabel works on site -- sometimes lit with less-than-perfect natural light. These are particularly wonderful.
The art is presented without titles, without references to the institution that owns it, and without the dimensions. This is just a big, honking book of art presented without the traditional contexts one usually finds in big, honking books of art.
At the very end of this book one gets an Exhibition History, a Bibliography, and an Artwork Index which provides details of each piece while reproducing it in 1/100th size.
As you might expect, this is a quality piece of work from Abrams: 370 pp, color illustrations throughout on heavy stock, with dustjacket, cloth over boards with a sewn binding. 7.5 pounds.
