Published by Ridinghouse. Edited by Clarrie Wallis.
Charting Richard Long’s critical reception, this anthology of writings tracks the artist’s radical rethinking of the relationship between art and landscape. Widely considered as one of the most influential British artists of his generation, Long’s practice stems from his deep love of nature and the experience of making solitary walks. He first came to prominence in the late 1960s and is part of a generation of international artists that extended the possibilities of sculpture beyond traditional materials and methods. This volume includes a coherent span of over 30 essays and reviews on the artist from the late 1960s to the present, drawn together here for the first time. The texts are accompanied by a selection of the artist’s own statements, key interviews, as well as an introductory essay by Clarrie Wallis that examines Long’s unique position within postwar art history.

Richard Long is widely recognized as one of the most important artists to have emerged since the 1960s, along with contemporaries Robert Smithson, Robert Morris and Sol LeWitt. This book gathers together for the first time a selection of Long's statements and interviews from 1971 through 2006. Published alongside black-and-white reproductions of his works, many of the texts have been unavailable for years. Also included are an early interview from 1971, published for the first time in English, and a previously unpublished conversation with Michael Auping, Chief Curator of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. These seminal texts are invaluable for an understanding of the rich and complex implications of Long's work. Taken together, they form the best introduction available to the work of one of the most important artists working today.

This thick spiral-bound artist's book presents documentation of an eight-day walk taken by the renowned English earth artist. Each thick, almost cardboard-y page is cut into three sections, so that the reader can see the horizon, the middle-ground or the foreground of mixed-and-matched pages, or from a single photographed moment, at once. Includes views of mist-enshrouded rock piles, running streams, just-blooming wildflowers, waving heather grasses and all variations of cloud.
