The Floating Piers Book by Taschen Publishing is a Collector’s Edition (No. 161–1,000), signed and designed by Christo, one of the artists responsible for allowing 1.2 million people to walk on water. This extraordinary environmental work is described from start to finish on 846 pages, revealing Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s earliest concept of a floating surface on tranquil waters back in 1970 through renewed interest in the project, research into possible locations, technical developments, material production, and the final 16-day experience with enraptured visitors from around the world. To round off this unique project book and privileged insight into Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s practice, The Floating Piers Book includes a swatch of the project’s original dahlia yellow fabric measuring 100,000 square meters above a modular floating dock system of 220,000 high density polyethylene cubes created on a walkway across the surface of Lake Iseo, connecting the mainland to the islands of Monte Isola and San Paolo.
