Looking at Architecture.

"The following architectural panorama seeks to be an introduction to the stimulating delights of great buildings." The author includes those words in his introduction to a most rewarding publication for anyone interested in great architecture. One-hundred handsome duotones illuminate many of the world's most notable buildings, and paired with a compelling text designed to stimulate appreciation of the art of architecture. The art of photography is also well served in this survey of such sites as Stonehenge, Angkor Wat, Taj Mahal, Robie House and ninety-five more architectural achievements. Excellent images and well-chosen words make this a book that should find a place on your resource shelf or coffee table.
