Biography is never a first choice read for me I find them in general too linear too much like a documentary So to fulfill an item on the Reading Women's 2020 Challenge I chose this children's picture book bio of the artist Ruth Asawa whom I had never heard of One of the pluses of a nonfiction picture book is the very specific focus and it's introductory nature Here the focus is on Asawa's art and the influences on it from nature The book has notes after the story that point to other aspects of Asawa's life and offer resources for further explorationA primary aspect of a picture book is the art which invites young audiences into the story Here the art is inviting and also works to enhance the artistic themeIt did seem to me that the story itself was too short There could have been specifics about Asawa's art and I would have loved seeing photos of some of her actual work

This is a good basic short biography about Ruth Asawa The information is interesting both her biographical information and the parts about her art education at Black Mountain College I appreciated how the narrative and art examples showed the importance of the natural world in her life and work Ruth grew up in a farming family and I love her uote “Sculpture is like farming If you just keep at it you can get a lot done” My favorite uote by her is “An artist is an ordinary person who can take ordinary things and make them special”The illustrations do capture the artist and her art I do wish there had been photographs especially of the art but also of Ruth and the people and places in her life The two pages at the end that have an Author’s Note a More About Ruth Asawa section and a resources list have the only photo It’s of Ruth and one of her sculptures I’m incredibly glad that it’s included but I wanted even The very last two pages of the book shows step by step how to make a dragonfly with paper glue and scissors This book was approved by the familyEstate of the artistRuth Asawa is a San Francisco institution A cousin of mine in my father’s generation was friends with her My cousin was also an artist though not a professional and I think one main reason this cousin on my father’s side and my mother were friends is they both appreciated art and I first learned ot appreciate art via my mother and Asawa’s work via my cousin I’ve always liked Ruth Asawa’s work and felt closer to it because of this connection so I was excited to find this book in one of my Book Riot emails I’ve already read one Asawa art book and there are others I’d like to read and definitely want to see of her sculptures 3 12 stars Might be a 4 12 if multiple photos of the art and the artist had been includedI want to read and might check out a book or two listed in the back and books too

A Life Made by Hand The Story of Ruth AsawaBook biography by collage artist Andrea D'Auino brings Asawa's creative journey to life detailing the influence of her childhood in a farming family and her education at Black Mountain Colle. I'd not heard of Ruth Asawa until very recently and just wow What amazing work and what an inspiring woman I enjoyed this book very much and I appreciate that the text focuses on her art her curiosity about the world the shapes found in nature and her education rather than her family's internment during WWII Not that that isn't important but her work deserves to be the focus The collage style illustrations throughout the book go well with the organic nature of Asawa's work and compliment the subject nicely The author's note at the end includes biographical information and the book concludes with an art project how to make a paper dragonfly Overall a lovely book
