"Birmingham Sculpture Trails" is the first in a new series of pocket guides to regional sculpture--this richly illustrated volume includes more than one hundred color photographs and showcases the fascinating array of monuments and sculptures that decorate England's second city, Birmingham. As a great manufacturing city, Birmingham not only attracted major sculptors from London but also possessed busy workshops filled with its own local sculptors and metalsmiths, often closely associated with its progressive art school. This stunning volume will be essential reading for anyone interested in public sculpture, as well as a rich regional reference for those wanting to learn more about the cultural heritage of Birmingham.
