Artifice combines with reverence for nature in this cairn, on Kangaroo Island, South Australia, by Andy Goldsworthy. In Stone (Viking pounds 35), a luscious photographic record of his curious, impermanent art, Goldsworthy shows dandelion heads arranged in fast-flowing rivers, or seizes on a sub-zero night to freeze giant icicles horizontally to brooding boulders. The captions are sometimes arch, but the work itself is always stunning.
