Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bridges is a gorgeous celebration of these elegant and practical structures. More than one hundred bridges are presented here in beautiful color. This visually stunning volume is sure to delight anyone with an eye for the beauty and elegance of these unique structures.

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.
