This book celebrates one of the most remarkable and idiosyncratic architects of modern times -- Antoni Gaudi's wonderfully bizzare yet romantic and intriguing buildings have imbued the Spanish city of Barcelona with a unique character and ensured his place in the pantheon of great architects. An introductory essay exploring Gaudi's life and career is followed by a selection of sumptuous images of his buildings including Casa Batllu and the church of the Sagrada Familia.
