This lavish book presents in detail the ongoing "Sheepfolds" project by sculptor and environmental artist Andy Goldsworthy -- a five-year public art, landscape and environment commission, which was planned to span the period 1996-2000, and arose from the selection of the Northern Arts Region to host the UK Year of the Visual Arts in 1996. Goldsworthy's site specific project for the region of Cumbria consists of building and restoring various sheepfold, washfold and pinfold structures. These ancient structures, walled areas used by shepherds to round up sheep, are ubiquitous in rural areas.
