Fascinating information and photos from beginning to end. Touching on various types of architecture. There was so many favorites, and quite a few new places to me, showcased in this book. I appreciated the parts in the book most, that visually deconstructed our favorite landmarks. A beautifully written and illustrated book!
Another book on high on my list!
