City, A Story of Roman Planning and Construction (David Macaulay)
City, A Story of Roman Planning and Construction by David Macaulay
The superb design, magnificent illustrations, and clearly presented information that distinguish all of David Macaulay's books is nowhere more evident than in this marvelous creation of the imaginary Roman city of Verbonia. Through his impressively detailed drawings and clear descriptive text, Macaulay shows how superbly the Romans built new and exciting, yet functional, cities for the people who were to inhabit them.
Since the publication of his first book, Cathedral in 1973, David Macaulay has acquired national and international acclaim. His books have been translated into a dozen languages, and he has been honored with countless awards, including a medal from the American Institute of Architects for being "an outstanding illustrator and recorder of architectural accomplishments".
