New Noguchi-Kenmochi book

This book arrived today and I've been devouring it. I first saw it over Easter weekend when visiting the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City. In particular, I wanted to spend time in the Noguchi Sculpture Court.

I knew about the Noguchi-Kenmochi exhibition at the The Noguchi Museum, but didn't know about this book and catalogue.  I'm thrilled to see new photographs, drawings, writings, designs from Noguchi's skilled hand and to learn of Isamu Kenmochi's work in Japan.
