Great Gothic Cathedrals of France
Paperback size for travel, this introduction to Gothic architecture and personal tour of French cathedrals is a celebration and an education in one, giving both the reader and the visitor a vivid and practical approach to appreciating these great buildings. Parry clarifies every significant element of their architecture in detailed text and beautiful, full-colour and b/w photos. The first handbook to bring together so many of these cathedrals with so many pictures, this necessity for the summer vacationer begs to be kept long afterward as a luscious souvenir.
