Reviews

 

“With so many historic buildings being torn down, it is important to document these beautiful details of a dying craft. It is a delightful book that will definitely alter the way you see things.” (Gazette & Herald)

 

“[M]akes a great coffee-table book to flip through casually, but also presents close-up images of finely detailed stone sculptures, which makes it a valuable addition to any stone sculptor's bookshelf.” (Sculptural Pursuits)
