    Andy Goldsworthy is one of my all-time favorite artists and his book, A Collaboration with Nature, is a really fantastic retrospective of his work. Goldsworthy hails from Scotland and has leveraged his love of verdant nature to create truly unique and beautiful works of art. He uses only found natural materials to create ephemeral sculptures that might last a few hours or days but that are designed to be washed back into nature quickly. Goldsworthy makes some truly amazing scultupres out of ice, autumn leaves, rocks, twigs, and other materials. If I could be an artist, I would want to work on stuff like his. Beautiful and very focused on raising our sense of ecological awareness, as well as the impermance of everything and, I suppose, the hubris of humanity at times. if you want to get someone who has a strong appreciation of aesthetics, as well as a eco/green streak in them, get them Andy Goldsworthy's A Collaboration with nature. It is a great coffeetable book.

    Andy Goldsworthy's art books are not to be missed. If you have never seen one I highly recommend picking one up and flipping through it. You will be enchanted. Goldsworthy creates art and sculpture using natural materials (rocks, leaves, sticks, snow), creating complex and striking structures out of natural landscapes. The books are large, high quality, coffee table like books, and are almost an art pieces themselves. I love them all but "Collaboration" and "Time" are possibly my favorites.

    GOldsworthy is probably the best nature installation artist in the world. The man is so incredibly talented and his work is so deeply connected to the environment it's inspiring and breathtaking. A great film about his work is Rivers and Tides. For people who love nature and art alike.

    This book got me hooked on Andy Goldsworthy. He is a genius and not only does his work look beautiful while being environmentally sensitive, it is so very inspiring. Where some art uses special mediums and skills, the art Mr. Goldsworthy creates is found in backyards and woods. It's like arts and crafts on a whole different level.
