One of the most influential designers of this century draws from a wide range of cultural and historical sources to create images that are provocative, emotional, sometimes shocking, and always beautiful. This new book chronicles nine of her most dynamic stage and screen productions from the past fifteen years, including: Bram Stoker's Dracula, directed by Francis Ford Coppola, M. Butterfly, starring Anthony Hopkins, Richard Wagner's Ring of the Nibelung, and The Cell, starring Jennifer Lopez.
In the accompanying text, Eiko takes us into her creative process and the harmonies and discords of her fascinating, explosive collaborations with such artists as Paul Schrader, David Copperfield, and Philip Glass, among many others. In counterpoint, Francis Ford Coppola shares his personal experience of a unique creative collaboration.

All too often, the talent behind wondrous sets and costumes, in advertising and in films, goes unrecognized, although rewards flourish in such high-visibility contests as the Grammies, the Oscars, and the Tonys. Ishioka, well known in her native Japan, will achieve more international fame with the publication of her second book (the first being Eiko by Eiko , 1983). She dissects the beginnings and realizations of her art in nine forms, ranging from a four-night-only performance of a Japanese opera to her millennial movie, The Cell . Hallmarks soon become apparent: literal visual metaphors (the anatomical diagram of an arm for David Copperfield's Broadway magic show); minimalism, as in Hwang's M. But terfly; and a sinuosity cloaking bodies in The Cell and The Ring of the Nibelung . Color photographs do much of the talking--and more than adequately pay homage to Eiko's art. Barbara Jacobs
