Sculpture Today is a hefty tome on contemporary sculpture over the past fifty years by Judith Collins. The chapters are arranged thematically and a lot is said about inspiration in the form of the body, light, colour, nature and architecture. Over 500 illustrations highlight the variety of materials and techniques used in this genre of contemporary art that engages by occupying actual space. It is this use of space that allows sculpture to be so diverse in its many forms and to escape set boundaries.
