From Library Journal:

This series of two-page spreads presents a discussion of sculpture worldwide from the Stone Age until the present era. Each of the 150 or so works that are shown here has a very compressed sound bite of text, with varying emphasis on technique, history, or art history. The illustrations are generally good, with some in situ shots giving an ideal of scale, but most are cropped to the image itself. The text is not bad, but it is not inspiring, either. This book is aimed at the neophyte or perhaps even the young adult. For readers who are seeking more, Nicholas Penny's excellent The Materials of Sculpture (Yale Univ. Pr., 1993) is highly recommended. A possibility for public libraries.
