Birmingham Sculpture Trails is the first in a series of pocket guides to regional sculpture, building on the highly successful Public Sculpture of Britain series. This richly illustrated volume includes more than one hundred colour photographs and showcases the rich array of monuments and sculptures in the city of Birmingham. Birmingham not only attracted major sculptors from London, but as a great manufacturing city it possessed busy workshops of local sculptors, often closely associated with its progressive and important art school. This stunning volume will be required reading for anyone interested in public sculpture and will also be welcomed by a regional readership determined to find out more about the cultural heritage of Britain’s second city.
