Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

    The word "castle" conjures thoughts of mystery, romance, intrigue and grandeur. When Caldecott-winning illustrator David Macaulay first published Castle in 1977, however, the word gained added significance to readers and art lovers around the world.

    In this first ever stand-alone full-color edition, Castle, is lavishly reborn in digitally finished drawings rendered with felt-tip markers and colored pencils. Factual and artistic details shine in light of newly researched information. Together, art and text remind us that a castles true wonder lies in the physical effort required to construct it and in the enduring spirit that inspired its design.

     

    With characteristic zest and wit punctuating his illustrations, David Macaulay painstakingly retraces the step-by-step planning and construction of Lord Kevins fictional castle where architecture enthusiasts and curious readers of all ages will marvel at the staggering possibilities of human imagination and ingenuity.

    Synopsis:

    The word itself conjures up mystery, romance, intrigue, and grandeur. What could be more perfect for an author/illustrator who has continually stripped away the mystique of architectural structures that have long fascinated modern man? With typical zest and wry sense of humor punctuating his drawings, David Macaulay traces the step-by-step planning and construction of both castle and town.

    Synopsis:

    Readers worldwide recognize Caldecott Medal winner David Macaulay's imaginary Cathedral of Chutreaux. This critically acclaimed book has been translated into a dozen languages and remains a classic of children's literature and a touchstone for budding architects. Cathedral's numerous awards include a prestigious Caldecott Honor and designation as a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year for Macaulay's intricate pen-and-ink illustrations.

    Journey back to centuries long ago and visit the fictional people of twelfth-, thirteenth-, and fourteenth-century Europe whose dreams, like Cathedral, stand the test of time.
