5.0 out of 5 stars A "Bird's Eye" view of the great buildings of the world 8 Nov 2013
By FishTacosMmm - Published on Amazon.com
Speck, your pigeon narrator, has a unique, bird's eye view of the great works of human architecture. He flies around the world looking at 19 great structures, and explores the differences in bridge design and building height. Warm, stylish, illustrations composed of a mix of watercolor, CAD, and photo collage in a skewed perspective, allow general overviews and detail call out at the same time. Each spread presents juicy factoids over the illustrations, with a complete history below, skewed to the interests of a pre-teen. The last few pages are dedicated to the stories of the architects behind each of the featured buildings. "Architecture According to Pigeons" will ignite a desire for real-world travel and discovery, as well as armchair exploration through history and tour books.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Book is really more suitable for teens or adults than small children but a clever premise and very good illustrations.
