Description - The Lure Of The Local by Lucy Lippard
World-famous, influential art and cultural writer Lucy R. Lippard weaves together cultural studies, history, geography and contemporary art to provide a fascinating exploration of our multiple senses of place. Expanding her reach far beyond the confines of the art world, she discusses issues of community, land use and how landscape affects our lives. This important classic work has long been out of print, and the original paperback was well received by critics and readers alike. Interesting and thoughtful... A solid contribution to popular geography.' - Kirkus'
