Ruth Asawa (Book and Journal)

A special Ruth Asawa set with a stunning catalogue and blank journal.

Ruth Asawa: The Journal is a welcome reminder to find inspiration in the everyday object. The delicate works featured in the artist's first Artist Journal beckon the inner artist to carve out time to look and create.

Revealing rarely seen work alongside her iconic looped-wire sculptures, Ruth Asawa: All Is Possible celebrates Asawa’s unique vision and intimate subject matter. The catalogue is a document of the breathtaking and surprising eponymous exhibition organized by Helen Molesworth.
