'The sculptor and the art critic have redefined the [art] form '
'If you want to rethink your ideas about sculpture, this fascinating book will give you pause for thought on just about every page ... a mighty, lusciously produced tome ... You can lose yourself in just looking at the illustrations'
'The quality of production does full justice to the superb content …there’s a strong sense of a continuous narrative driven by shared enthusiasm and common, though not always parallel, ground'
'I lost myself in your book – it seemed to be about my world'
Carlo Rovelli, physicist and author of 'There Are Places in the World Where Rules Are Less Important'
'A fully illustrated journey across time and space … a volume about relishing not just the range and variety, but also the power and possibilities of the discipline it discusses'
'Lavishly illustrated … invites us to take a new look at three-dimensional art as it ranges across eras, continents, scales and materials … an interesting and often revelatory book'
Rachel Campbell-Johnston, The Times
'[A] revealing examination of sculpture across the aeons'
Best Art Books of 2020, Sunday Times
'Imagine eavesdropping on two brilliant men discussing art, bouncing ideas around and clarifying each other’s thoughts … a fascinating conversation, which defines sculpture as widely as possible … Brilliant'
'A fresh way to encounter art as a global phenomenon'
'There is something very personal about Gormley and Gayford’s conversations ... The maker brings renewed understanding to the writer, the critic, the reader, the viewer. This understanding enables us to better interrogate sculpture, and perhaps to reflect more fully on our lives in the world'
'Gormley provides an exceptionally erudite foil for their joint insights into the merging of art, architecture, faith and life'
World of Interiors
'Lively conversations and explorations which encourage the reader to look at sculpture in a completely different way. ...The content, familiar and unfamiliar, is awesome. Gormley and Gayford are very accessible'
