new book on Pam Longobardi's project on ocean refuse published
Those who have followed Pam Longobardi's project of making sculpture from vast quantities of plastic detritus salvaged from the world's ocean beaches will be pleased to learn that Charta (Milan & NY) has published a book devoted to the body of work, $29.95. Or it will be when it's published in the US in the fall; available now in Italy, and limited quantities via Longobardi's website, http://www.pamlongobardi.com.
As a matter of full disclosure, I have not seen a copy of this but it is my practice to pass along information in lieu of reviews from time to time, especially when I have seen examples of the work with which the book deals.
