    1. Mostly I ve just looked at the pictures a few times over But as I m starting to read the text, I m pleased to find that this book has a refreshing focus on JC s vocation, his tools, materials, methodology, and organization of images and ideas, as opposed to a lot of writing about him that seeks to apply abstract terms and concepts to both his works and personality eccentric, spiritual, pervert, surrealist, metaphysical, etc , while neglecting the most apt characterization of all that of artist a [...]

    2. Joseph Cornell, one of the world s best fine art collagists, is often neglected in the art history books because his work was neither explicitly ideological nor very politically engaged Here we have a savant of a sort, who existed in a rather peculiar limbo throughout his life His puzzle boxes and installations are too craft oriented and idiomatic to be fully embraced by the fine art cogniscenti Which is their loss, as his best works have a wonderful mythical resonance to them Comes with one of [...]

    3. looking through this while Im at workry inspiring how he can make art out of categorizing and collecting things Usually we dont think of organized minds being creatives always the frenetic left brained ers that we associate with artistic ability AnywaysIm learning a lot so far and being inspired Though like my brother said Yeah, it sucked when I found out about that guy cause I wanted to do light boxes.

    4. My son gave me this book for Christmas I had never heard of Joseph Cornell, but his work is oddly familiar to me Odd religious beliefs, odd self taught artist making shadow boxes that pay tribute to his inner mythology Strangely compelling Well written text too, accompanying the images.

    5. A good pick for those interested in Cornell s art his work is presented in beautifully photographed spreads that capture the mood and feel of his work, the stillness and shadows, the sense of time invested in the work and yet the curious timelessness of the pieces themselves

    6. The essays examining Cornell s life are fine, but the illustrations of his collage work and boxes was stunning.
