Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"The famous buildings featured in this pictorial collection include Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany, New York City's Guggenheim Museum and the Beijing National Stadium (built for the 2008 Olympics), each pictured in color photographs, cross-sections and/or ground plans, with time lines tracing the buildings' developments and changes over time. The straightforward text provides historical context and facts for each structure (the Tower of Pisa continues to lean despite multiple attempts at straightening; the Taj Mahal was built as a memorial). A sound introduction to some impressive structures. Also available: 13 Artists Children Should Know. Ages 12 — up. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:
