2016, Limited Edition Monograph
Richard Erdman’s new monograph, "Richard Erdman Sculpture", is a survey of monumental works in stone and bronze created in the last decade and includes 158 color reproductions. With essays by Amy Rahn and Michael Wehunt, this 160-page hardcover book takes the viewer on a journey around the world, to the vast and harmonious environments in which Erdman’s sculptures are placed: upon shimmering water, among ancient trees near Lake Zurich, a bucolic English estate, and a bustling corporate lobby in New Delhi. The prominent presence of each sculpture does not impose upon the landscape, but rather enhances it, grounding the surrounding communities and creating an environment of beauty and contemplation.Purchase
