This volume on Tomma Abts (b. 1967) will be published in conjuction with the exhibition of the same name that will be on display at New York's New Museum of Contemporary Art from 9 April to 29 June 2008. It explores how the artist creates forms that delight the eye and challenge the mind. While working within strict parameters, Abts has reinvented abstraction for the twenty-first century.
This is the first monograph on Abts, providing an extensive overview of more than ten years of work. It includes illuminating essays by three top critics, as well as full color reproductions of virtually every painting and drawing made by the artist since 1997.

"Descriptions of each building and case study are extraordinarily successful... [This book] achieves what Kahn often outlined as the ultimate challenge for an architect: capturing the mind's vision."-Blueprint "Deserves a place as a solid student textbook."-Architect's Journal "Beautiful."-Prospect "Should be an inspiration for students and teachers in any design and technology, engineering or art department... This beautifully produced 500 page book could be used not only for the insight it gives into Kahn's design, but also for its extensive series of concept drawings, detailed plans, photographs of architectural models, and sketches and photographs of completed projects."-Bill Richmond, Times Educational Supplement "The time is ripe for comprehensive critical assessment of [Kahn's] work... McCarter's [...] book is comprehensive in scope, thoroughly researched, well written, extensively illustrated... and beautifully produced by Phaidon... At the end of the book, McCarter concisely grasps and articulates something of the essential truth about Kahn."-The Architectural Review "This homage to Kahn is helped by the drama of his prodigious output of theoretical schemes and foiled master plans... When he suceeded, the results were spectacular... This book does him proud."-Wallpaper* "A labour of love... A conscientious review... Kahn, is, after Le Corbusier, the major architectural thinker of the twentieth century, revered as much by Norman Foster as by Robert Venturi."-Robert Maxwell, Professor Emeritus of Architecture, Princeton University, Times Literary Supplement
