Published to accompany solo exhibitions presented both in Dublin and Oxford by Irish artist Sean Lynch. A Blow-by-Blow Account of Stonecarving in Oxford explores the oeuvre of nineteenth century stonecarvers John and James O’Shea who carved monkeys, cats, owls, and parrots on buildings in Oxford and Dublin.

A sixty page photonovel, this book tells the story of the O’Sheas and their many encounters on their travels. It also associates the O’Shea’s work as being alive with diverse allegorical and associative meanings. Featuring a series of short essays, images, and artist contributions.
