Description
A teacher at the New York School of Interior Design, Robert Arthur King here conducts a delightful photographic tour of architectural ornaments at 126 addresses in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx, capturing the personalities of the sculptured faces found there in duotone portraits of beautiful women and youths, allegorical figures, historical and mythological characters, hilarious grotesques, and monsters. And this handsome, compact coffee table book is a guidebook as well, with street addresses, subway stations, and bus stops provided for each building, allowing you to go and see them for yourself.

"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 (UK)

"Makes 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 Pursuit (Denver)
