Glasgow is Scotland's largest city, its streets a constant frenetic bustle of activity. But rarely do its residents take the time to stop and look up at the extraordinary architectural heritage all around. Glasgow's 'no mean city' image belies this world-class architectural detail, comprising of stunning sculpture, ornament, friezes, gables and decoration, the vast majority of which are hidden in plain sight above eye level. Writer Adrian Searle and specialist architectural photographer David Barbour have scoured the city, bringing together in one volume a fabulous record of the hidden jewels of 'the second city of the Empire', created in a time of great wealth and virtuoso craftsmanship now long gone. The book also includes poetry from six of Scotland's leading poets, responding in very individual ways to Glasgow's extraordinary built environment. Look Up Glasgow is a beautiful surprise, demonstrating that Glasgow is much more than just another post-industrial British city. Now in a handy pocket edition, residents and visitors can use Look Up Glasgow as a rooftop guide to the city, to track down their favourite sculptures.
