Buckminster Fuller and Isamu Noguchi : best of friends by Shoji Sadao( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This intriguing book is an informal, close-up biography of the friendship between Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) and Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988). Author Shoji Sadao, who was friend and business partner to both, chronicles the respect, affection, and support they had for one another. Fuller's development of his Dymaxion Map and Car, and Geodesic geometry, are discussed in detail as is Noguchi's multifaceted career as sculptor, landscape architect, industrial designer, dance-set designer, and artist without borders who challenged the artificial opposition between the fine and applied arts. Sadao's role as partner to both gives him privileged access to details unavailable to others, resulting in a warm and intimate-and fully illustrated-narrative that documents an exceptional relationship
Isamu Noguchi, Qi Baishi : Beijing 1930( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1930, renowned Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988) journeyed to Beijing, where he studied with the Chinese brush-and-ink painter Qi Baishi (1864–1957). Qi, greatly admired for his dynamic brushwork and calligraphy, had a profound impact on Noguchi. As he later said, 'All Japanese art has roots in China.' Isamu Noguchi/Qi Baishi/Beijing 1930 brings together the work of these two artists for the first time. Published to accompany a traveling exhibition, this volume features some 65 drawings by Noguchi and ink painting and calligraphic works by Qi. Noguchi’s drawings suggest a keen observation of Qi’s masterful skills and artistry with free-spirited lines, bold brushstrokes, and a purposeful use of void space."--Publisher description
Museum of stones : ancient and contemporary art at the Noguchi Museum by Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using the sculpture of Isamu Noguchi and the setting of his titular museum as a point of departure, this book looks at the various ways artists from across the world have explored the place of rock and stone in human culture, taking inspiration from American-born artist Jimmie Durham's opinion that sculpture and architecture in the West "denature" stone. Photography of the artworks installed in The Noguchi Museum beautifully represents the unique and thoughtful meeting of Isamu Noguchi's sculpture with that of contemporary artists and ancient examples from East and West"--
