This review is from: The Cathedral Builders of the Middle Ages (New Horizons) (Paperback)
This very readable little book is positivelly crammed with contemporary illustrations. Of particular interest are the reproductions of original construction drawings, and details of ornament and colour as originally designed and applied.
As one would expect, most of the illustrations are of continental (especially French) origin and thus new to most British readers. The quality of the reproductions is very good in a book of so low a cost, and the colours are nothing short of magnificent.
Strongly recommended - a glorious trip around an under rated corner of history. The Cathedral Builders of the Middle Ages (New Horizons)
