Lost Constellations is the second volume of work by Tara McPherson and makes a great gift for any fan. Loaded with recent sketches, illustrations and paintings by McPherson, as well as photos of installations, sculpture and toys, the book is also a good introduction to work by this NYC-based contemporary artist. McPherson's edgy work is provocative and feminine with the occasional dash of cute.
