5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic royal palaces., 11 Jun. 2008
This review is from: The Royal Palaces of London (Hardcover)
I have always been into Tudor and historical architecture and I couldn't wait for this book to come out. What an amazing book! Not only do we get some amazing photographs and illustrations, but the collaboration of three great architectural historians collaborating with the monarchy. We have illustrations of what the palaces looked like in their heyday as well as photos of and information archeological digs on the sites where these great powerhouses once stood.

A fantastic book and wholeheartedly recommended!

This review is from: The Royal Palaces of London (Hardcover)
This is a very large coffee table book so I was expecting some breathtaking photos and illustrations.

For a really good coffee table book with wonderful original photos try Hidden London Interiors by Philip Davies.
