Furniture designer Wendell Castle has carved a distinct path over nearly six decades of a distinguished career, and this long-awaited recording of his oeuvre, Wendell Castle: A Catalogue Raisonné, 1958-2012, beautifully delivers. The voluminous accounting, beginning with Castle’s earliest, mid-century works through to his unabashed experiments with unconventional materials (gel-coated fiberglass and metallic automobile paint) and his latest signature wood laminations, is comprehensive and detailed. Three essays of varying perspectives introduce the catalogue raisonné and a substantial back matter follows. By Emily Evans Eerdmans, Essays by Dave Barry, Glenn Adamson, and Jane Adlin.
