Statuesque – new* booklet

statuesque coverYou may have noticed I have a thing about memorialisation, statues and why cities end up like they do. I’ve done a new* 24-page magazine booklet of photographs and essays about the public art and “monuments to great men” (and two women) called: ‘Statuesque: Smartarsedness about the public sculptures of Manchester  and you can read a pdf of it for free by clicking here. or you can buy a copy from Blurb here (I dont make any profit on Blurb sales and they charge a fortune for postage, so get a voucher or see if I’ve got a spare copy to flog you).

*The “new” bit is not strictly true as most of the words were written for articles published in Now Then Manchester Magazine and The Meteror, but theres new stuff too on Manchester and Oldham’s new Suffregette statues, public art and the Manchester bomb and Michael Jackson.
