In this sixth volume of Public Sculpture of Britain, the reader is presented with some dramatic contrasts in public sculpture. Public Sculpture of Warwickshire meticulously catalogues the vast array of work that exists in this region. Richly illustrated, the book reveals how Lady Godiva in Coventry and William Shakespeare in Stratford proved in different ways irresistible subjects for public sculpture, resulting in inspirational masterpieces by Reid Dick and Ronald Gower. Close scrutiny is also given to the modern sculpture. The post war reconstruction of Coventry symbolized the whole nation's recovery on both a social and economic front, and demonstrated through some of the most dynamic and innovative sculpture of modern times. The Public Sculpture of Britain series is profusely illustrated and catalogues in great detail sculpture in Britain available to the public. It is the published outcome of the National Recording Project of the Public Monuments and Sculpture Association, and it will eventually cover the whole of Britain. Earlier volumes in the series covered Liverpool, Birmingham, North-East England, and Leicestershire & Rutland.
