Book Overview
This new book--inspired by four classic, award-winning books--reveals the how and why behind some of the most fascinating and enduring structures humankind has ever created. Macaulay has revised texts based on new research, created gorgeous new drawings in black and sepia inks, in some cases wholly re-imagined scenes from the books--bringing City, Castle, and Cathedral to life in full-color for the very first time. The resulting illustrations add to the reader's understanding of these various buildings, capturing intriguing new perspectives and a depth of detail in structure and atmosphere. This impeccably researched volume is not only a necessary addition to the bookshelf of any David Macaulay or architecture fan, but will delight readers of all ages who are experiencing his work for the first time.
