Are you an architect or just a history buff, or are a bit homesick for some non-crackerjackbox architectural input? Then this is the book for you. Mine is in "like-new" condition, and I've been going through it over and over again since getting it in the mail. Filled with excellent illustration and lengthy text, just the thing to set you thinking, then back to the computer with the CAD software and some new building designs. A good book to have for any artist, painter, architect or engineer or just plain bookworm. This book is well printed and well bound.
