"It's easy to believe that George Herms never made a work except out of love," writes Dave Hickey in his introduction to George Herms: The River Book, a two-volume collection that features work from Herms's five-decade career. From his early black-and-white photos to his more contemporary collage and published work, Herms has a lot of love (and art) to show, and though he may have been flying under some radars, George Herms: The River Book is proof that he shouldn't have been. Includes an extensive history of Herms's life and exhibitions.
