Vintage paperback coffee table book featuring a retrospective of the work of architect and stage designer, Frederick Kiesler. By Lisa Phillips, published in 1989. 1st edition, 170 pages.
"Frederick Kiesler--architect, artist, designer, poet, philosopher--was part Renaissance man, part space-age prophet. He bridged the past and the future, while maintaining that 'the artist can never be of his time, he is always by necessity ahead of it.' He also bridged boundaries between media, challenging conventional definitions of disciplines. Though his activities were far-ranging, they were not disconnected. His lifelong creed was continuity--the essential relatedness of all his seemingly diverse practices."
