Here is an exciting and informative guide to structures in which we live, work, play and worship. Superb color photographs offer a unique 'eyewitness' view of buildings from the ground up. See incredible stone gargoyles, where linenfold wood paneling is found, what a Japanese screen is made of and how a hammer-beam roof is supported. Learn how stained glass is made, the difference between hipped and gabled roofs, how medieval tiles were made, what pantiles are and how stonemasons dress and carve stone.
