Excellent gift for young women Oct. 23 1996
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the exhibit book for "The Dinner Party", the historic
feminist art project led by Judy Chicago. It consists of a
table with 39 place settings, each honoring a legendary or
real woman. Each setting consists of painted and sculpted
china plates and embroidered tapestries, both replete with
imagery and symbolism. I am giving it to a young female
friend for her 13th birthday, and I've already given it to
a 17-year-old cousin. Congress considered this work obscene,
but I consider it a masterpiece.

An excellent, illustrated guide to the art of Judy Chicago. May 18 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The Dinner Party: From Creation to Reservation offers up an excellent, illustrated guide to the art of Judy Chicago. All other books documenting her DINNER PARTY are all out of print, but even when they were available, none offered such an extensive, full-color treatment as does THE DINNER PARTY: FROM CREATION TO RESERVATION. Documentary photos follow its creation and an essay by Judy Chicago surveys the history of women, the collaborative effort involved, and the history of the work's exhibition. Perfect for college-level art libraries; especially those with some works on Judy Chicago already in their holdings.

I love this book! Nov. 2 2008
By Patchouli Medusa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I love judy chicago's dinner party. The art is organic and really fits the different representations of the women she is trying to portray. This book has pictures of the plates, as well as the individual runners for the plates. It also has information about the 999 women who's names form the dinner party. Not everyone has a plate, but there is a little bio about them. I really like to pull this book out for inspiration and information about the women represented in this book. It's a great art book that really illustrates this piece, since I may never see it in person.

A Must-Have for Women and for Men Who Appreciate Them July 19 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A triumph! A long-awaited celebration of truth about all womankind! A must-have for all women. and for men who truly appreciate their worth! Every female in the world should read this book cover-to cover and rejoice. A rare and beautiful work of art--second only to The Dinner Party exhibit itself. I am going to give this book to my daughter, friends of varying ethnic backgrounds, and several lesbian friends. How often do you find a book that speaks to the entire human race about the valuable contributions of the so-called "weaker sex"? Now we must all work to get The Dinner Party exhibit traveling, as it was originally intended to do, so that we can all personally stand in awe at this altar to all Eve's daughters!
