Castle

Front Cover
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 1977 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 74 pages
5 Reviews
The word itself conjures up mystery, romance, intrigue, and grandeur. What could be more perfect for an author/illustrator who has continually stripped away the mystique of architectural structures that have long fascinated modern man? With typical zest and wry sense of humor punctuating his drawings, David Macaulay traces the step-by-step planning and construction of both castle and town.
