Book Description

1 April 2009
Spanish architect and designer Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926) is an important and influential figure in the history of contemporary Spanish art. His use of colour, application of different materials and introduction of movement in his constructions were an innovation in the realm of architecture. In his journal, Gaudí freely expressed his own feelings on art, the colours used in architecture have to be intense, logical and fertile. The author, Jeremy Roe, is interested in a wide range of photography and architectural detail. This interest drives the author and enables him to reveal the context of the art of Barcelona while he guides us through an introduction to Antoni Gaudí, master of some of the most famous constructions, design objects and greatest works in Spanish architecture. This book offers a great insight into Gaudi's work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Back to the drawing board - please! 3 Dec 2013
By jpcooper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of Antoni Gaudi's and was pleasantly surprised when I noticed another book available showcasing his works. The excitement faded, however, after the very first perusal. I found many of the images to be out of focus and worse yet, very uninspiring. It appeared to be a rather rushed production, something designed to capitalize on this architect's surging popularity. It is disappointing, too, in that Parkstone generally offers quality books at very reasonable prices. This was one of their more expensive productions and it struck out on both counts.

I rarely return a book, unless it has suffered damage in shipping. This will be one of the few exceptions. If you are interested in purchasing a truly worthwhile volume of this genius' masterworks, I would highly recommend Juan Cirlot's magnum opus, "Gaudi" published by Triangle Postals. It's a nearly six pound behemoth and excels in every way this book fails.

Absolutely beautiful book. We just watched a segment about this church on the History channel and decided to purchase the book. Thrilled with this purchase!
