Andrea Palladio: the architect in his time
A comprehensive handbook tracing the career of the architect who transformed the building design and construction of the Western world, this is the revised paperback edition of Abbeville's acclaimed 1994 large-format publication.
Andrea Palladio (1505-1589) was one of the most brilliant architects the world has ever known; many consider his villas, palaces, and churches the embodiment of Renaissance ideals. Though his buildings have often been photographed and numerous specialized studies have been written about his career, never before have Palladio's life and times been brought together in such an incisive narrative as this one. Richly illustrated with specially commissioned photographs as well as period plans and drawings, this book sets Palladio within the backdrop of the dramatic events and personalities of the age while discussing his importance in art history.

For over a decade, I have lusted after Bruce Boucher's Andrea Palladio: The Architect in His Time. This is a big wonderful book on one of the most inspiring architects of all time. The $95.00 list price for the hardcover was prohibitively high, although a softcover is available for much less. But a book like this deserves hardcover, and I was quite pleasantly surprised this week to find it in a library bookshop for $6.00. Yes, it's ex library, but the stamping, etc, are minimal, and the book is in wonderful shape. The Renaissance architecture of Palladio was a prime inspiration for Thomas Jefferson's design for Monticello. My wife and I visited Monticello some years ago, and it was a dream come true to visit my favorite American house and find that it more than lived up to it's reputation. Palladio made it all possible.
Andrea Palladio: the architect in his timeUser Review - Book Verdict
Andrea Palladio has been one of the most admired, the most influential, and the most copied architects in history. His pedimented images of classical architecture, carefully proportioned, hierarchically disposed, and emphatically domed, have governed institutional design around the world, and the bibliography on him is enormous. A professor of fine arts in England, Boucher is an authority on his subject, and he has written a fine work, gracefully summarizing many decades of scholarship. The book is greatly enriched by over 40 valuable color photographs of the original works in situ. This is the best recent survey of Palladio's career, updating and in some ways eclipsing James Ackerman's standard Palladio (Penguin, 1996).--Peter S. Kaufman, Boston Architectural Ctr.
