MEDIA REVIEWS
This comprehensively illustrated guide provides both an idea of where you might want to go, how to get there and what to see when you do ... This is a well thought-out and attractively-presented guide that should be of interest to the serious student or the curious traveller. * Art Book Review *
This guide contains all the information you could want in order to plan a visit. Arranged geographically, it provides location information as well as details of opening times, prices and a summary of what to look out for when you're there. For me, though, the real treat is the generous illustrations. If you like modern sculpture, they're a pure feast and provide a real sense of what's out there. For all those parks you maybe can't get to, this book is not a bad substitute. It will, however, also whet your appetite. Sixty-six parks are included, from the can't-miss Yorkshire Sculpture Park to the hadn't-thought-of-that Derek Jarman's garden at Dungeness. The only problem is: do you keep it in the house or in the car? -- Henry Malt * The Artist *
