Included here are a selection of vintage and reprinted artists’ books, catalogs and folded posters by and about the work of British artist Richard Long. Along with other ‘Earth Art’ artists, Long explored the simple act of utilizing the given landscape as a site for enacting artworks. In the course of his lengthy (often multi-day) explorations of the outdoors – through Japan, Canada, Iceland, Ireland and elsewhere – he often made understated gestural markings into the earth which served as both works of action, as well as sculptural pieces later transformed into text-works and photographs.

For his well known work “A line made by Walking,” the 22 year old Long walked back and forth through a small section of the English Countryside. The resulting pathway carved into the earth was photographed in black and white.

From Long:

In the nature of things:

Art about mobility, lightness and freedom.

Simple creative acts of walking and marking

about place, locality, time, distance and measurement.

Works using raw materials and my human scale

in the reality of landscapes.
