This is a compilation of designs from temples and other buildings of ancient Greece and Rome.
Well I am fascinated with architecture and history and Greece and Rome epitomises both for me perfectly. Naturally, I was attracted to this book merely based on the description. However, I think I skipped on the illustration part in the description. When I opened the book, I think other than the art pictures, I wanted to have a small history lesson regarding each plate. Merely looking at the pictures, I didn’t understand much since I have never been to the two places.
I can talk about the cover inage and the title but to be honest you can’t criticise something that represents the main concept of the book so thoroughly.
The book is excellent for those who are in the field of art and history and what a quick reference manual when it comes to Greek and Roman architecture.
My rating: 4 out of 5
