One of the best architecture books I've seen! 13 April 2000
By J. D. Rose - Published on
Format: Hardcover
As a student of cathedral and church architecture, I found this book to be highly informative, yet readable and engaging. The author's introduction to the subject evidences excellent research, and as the book progresses each subject is treated with admirable detail. The photographs are exquisite- each subject is shown from the best possible vantage point. The pivotal churches of St. Sernin in Toulouse and Ste. Foy in Conques are discussed in detail. This treatise is one of the best of its kind- a purchase that you will not regret.
Once Again, Taschen's Photos are Glorious, Text Not So Much 1 Dec. 2014
By Anne Mills - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a stunning photographic survey of Romanesque architecture, with a text that does not live up to the pictures. Like the precursor volume in the Taschen series, "The Early Middle Ages", it is chock full of beautiful photographs that show off many aspects of Romanesque architecture. Anyone with serious interest in this topic should consider buying this book, for the photographs alone. Unfortunately, for me at least, the text was not as illuminating as the photos. It may be lack of knowledge on my part that prevented me from profiting from the text to the full, but it seemed to me too focused on the details of particular buildings, and too little on broader trends and patterns.
