Summary
  • Presents an illustrated look at the step-by-step building of a thirteenth-century Gothic cathedral.--
  • "Readers worldwide recognize David Macaulay's imaginary Cathedral of Chutreaux. Originally published in 1973, this critically acclaimed book has since 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 designations as both a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year and an ALA Notable Book. Now, in this first-ever standalone full-color edition, David Macaulay reimagines his pen-and-ink masterpiece in lush felt-tip marker and vibrant colored pencil. Factual and artistic details shine in a revised text that reflects newly researched information to deepen understanding of the cathedral's structural complexity and awe-inspiring design. Journey back to centuries long ago and revisit the fictional people of twelfth-, thirteenth-, and fourteenth-century Europe whose dreams, like Cathedral, stand the test of time."--Jacket flap
