    Ernest Shearman

    Ernest Shearman built just 6 churches in the London suburbs in the early 20th century, His individual bold yet austere Neo-Gothic style was influenced by the simple early mendicant (Franciscan and Dominican) redbrick Gothic churches of northern Italy as well as the French flamboyant, Gothic Revival and Arts & Crafts movements, presaging the arrival of Modernism. His churches stand proud in their neighbourhoods today with thriving congregations. By introducing this little known architect to a wider audience this book aims to establish Shearman among the significant architects of his generation.

    On a Pedestal

    This is a book for people who are interested in statues – and for people who aren’t. It explores those immortalised in marble and bronze – and what the rest of us think about them. As Roger Lytollis travels Britain he encounters a man at Liverpool’s Beatles statue convinced that Rod Stewart was in the Fab Four. In Edinburgh he walks into a row over Greyfriars Bobby’s nose and in Glasgow learns why the Duke of Wellington wears a traffic cone on his head. London brings a controversial nude statue and some hard truths about racism. Elsewhere, Roger sees people dancing with Eric Morecambe, finds a statue being the backdrop to a marriage proposal and, everywhere he goes, pigeons. Always pigeons. ‘On a Pedestal’ examines public statues around the nation.
