The works of Christo and Jeanne-Claude are monuments of transience. Gigantic in scale, they are always temporary, created to exist only for a limited time and to leave unique, unrepeatable impressions. "From the smallest of the Packages made in Paris in the early 1960s, to the delicate pattern of hundreds of branches embraced by a translucent fabric veil... in Christo and Jeanne-Claude's works there is nothing abstract, nothing imagined; it is all there--corporeal and tangible." (Lorenza Giovanelli) Part biography, part critical analysis, part catalogue, this updated edition brings back TASCHEN's best-selling Collector's Edition. It spans Christo and Jeanne-Claude's entire work, from early drawings and family photos to plans for future projects. Hundreds of photographs and original works trace the couple's projects from the past 10 years, including The Floating Piers and The London Mastaba, as well as works in progress such as The Mastaba, Project for the United Arab Emirates and L'Arc de Triomphe Wrapped, Paris. Together with the comprehensive photographic documentation by Wolfgang Volz this book is a celebration of the work of two artists whose imagination has affected the landscape of every continent.
