This is essentially a guide to the sculpture parks and trails of England. It is not a book on art theory, nor is it just a travel guide. The book is divided up into regions, making it easy to access. It provides information on nearly all the sculpture venues of interest, featuring the best and most well-known and established, while also providing other places of interest for each region. Each feature provides directions of how to get there, along with an overview of the park or trail, and lists sculptures of particular interest and quality. This makes it easy to see which places are good depending on your preferences, and time available. The guide is aimed at the uninitiated in sculpture, or for those that are already interested in art and sculpture but do not know about all the places available to them. This fully revised 2nd edition provides updated information for all the entries for England, as well as brand new entries providing thorough coverage of Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

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 *
