For seven years, photographer and artist Lena Herzog followed the evolution of a new kinetic species. Intricate as insects but with bursts of equine energy, the “Strandbeests,” or “beach creatures,” are the creation of Dutch artist Theo Jansen, a new life-form that moves, and even survives, on its own. This tribute showcases Jansen’s imaginative vision, a mesmerizing encounter with whole new ideas of existence.

Hardcover with three fold-outs, 9.8 x 13.8 in., 5.89 lb, 328 pages
