Description Making an Angel is a comprehensive overview of the construction and erection of the Angel of the North in Gateshead. Created by the internationally renowned sculptor Antony Gormley, the Angel is the biggest public sculpture in Britain. This book includes over 200 photographs, alongside reviews and designs that chart the making of the Angel. It explores the way in which Gormley's creative vision and Arup's engineering skills and technical knowledge have combined to make a confidently conclusive sculptural statement. Accompanying the images are essays by the novelist and cultural critic Iain Sinclair, art historians Dr Stephanie Brown and Gail-Nina Anderson, and sociologist Beatrix Campbell, as well as text by Gormley himself and Gateshead Arts Council. Making An Angel is designed by Why Not Associates. "High production values, eloquent design and revealing essays." - Independent on Sunday
