Review: An Outline of European Architecture

User Review  - Alfred - Goodreads

A useful book, but the layout doesn't lend itself to quick referencing and can be daunting to a new comer upon the topic; its more of a complete read through for someone who already has an intermediate knowledge of the topic. Read full review

User Review  - K. - Goodreads

Extremely technical. I have faith in Pevsner's research and his intellect, but his writing style is dense and sometimes difficult. Read full review
