As one who loves the assemblage art of Joseph Cornell and who has tried to mimic his work (have never even come close to his most uninspiring pieces), I will say this is one of the best books I have read in a long while. The poems and fiction inspired by Joseph Cornell's series of boxes he created about birds speak not only to the writers' love of Cornell but to the power that art has to inspire. This prose and poetry is diverse, powerful, affective and magical. Each piece is preceded by a color plate of the Cornell work that inspired it making this book as well a small collection of Cornell's magic. I am giving everyone on my holiday list a copy.
