Book News Annotation:
Awe-inspiring color photos (100 or so) supplement architect Ostrow's text which celebrates design and engineering from the early Roman bridges to the most recent suspension bridges, supplying information about historical, technical, and human aspects of their construction and use. The oversize (11x13") format allows for generous display of the photos. A splendid book, and a splendid value.
