December 2005

"This is a beautiful book, with comprehensive coverage of Tanabe's art from the early abstracts to the later majestic landscapes..." "Douglas & McIntyre has clearly taken stock of current standards in international art-book publishing--this is an up-to-date volume with a clean look that adds some publishing style to the mix. Other books are in the pipeline. As a group, they should boost the profile of contemporary Canadian art and engage a younger readership with empty coffee tables to fill."

November 2005

"This is not just a superbly produced book, with no expense spared on the quality of paper and colour reproduction, it is an expertly written book." "The Introduction is followed by three lengthy, analytical, beautifully written chapters by Roald Nasgaard, Nancy Tousley and Jeffrey Spalding." "In a short review it is impossible to do justive to either the artist, whose work is of unquestionable importance, or the critical narratives, which attest to the contributors' genuine devotion to the work. But not to acknowledge this fine book, which represents the first retrospective of Tanabe's art in print, would be a shame."
