Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An author and artist who has continually stripped away the

mystique of architectural structures that have long fascinated

modern people, David Macaulay here reveals the methods and

materials used to design and construct a mosque in late-sixteenth-

century Turkey. Through the fictional story and Macaulay's distinctive full-color illustrations, readers will learn not only how such monumental structures were built but also how they functioned in relation to the society they served.

As always, Macaulay has given a great deal of attention to the

relationship between pictures and text, creating another brilliant

celebration of an architectural wonder.

Synopsis:

Following in the tradition he established with Cathedral: The Story of Its Construction and in the many books he has published in the thirty years since, David Macaulay provides explanations of the how and the why in a way that is both accessible and entertaining. His work has earned numerous accolades, including a Caldecott Medal, two Caldecott Honors, and a MacArthur Grant, and many fans around the globe. With Mosque, he turns his talents toward the magnificent structures of the Ottoman Empire.
