    One thought on “Calder's Circus”

    1. Charming, brief book. I'm also basing my rating on videos of Calder performing. The various pieces of Calder's circus do things when manipulated that are only apparent in video.

    2. it is very short on text + not a ton of color reproductions, but WONDERFUL text - from interviews w/Calder

    3. been a fan of calder ever since i saw a documentary about him on pbs. this was a really neat look into some of his work. mostly pictures.
