Ai Weiwei's reputation stretches far beyond the art world. This TASCHEN book, signed by the artist, is the first comprehensive monograph on Ai Weiwei’s life and work. Compiled in close collaboration with Ai and with direct access to his own archives, the book explores the artist's particular brand of expression and activism over more than 700 pages of images and text. The volume is wrapped in a silk scarf, which reproduces a detail of Ai's work Straight, a reference to the Sichuan earthquake of 2008. The book features paper-cut chapter openers designed by the artist, numerous previously unseen images from his archive, as well as statements on his work from exclusive interviews. Limited and numbered edition of 100 copies, each art edition is presented with a specially designed sculpture by the artist - a marble book stand. The marble originates from Fangshan District, located at the southwest region of Beijing.
