Fabulous, artistic book, Perfect for Dibnah fans and architecture enthusiasts alike!,
This review is from: Fred Dibnah's Buildings of Britain (Hardcover)
This is a beautifully laid-out book which deals semi-biographically with Dibnah's interest in historical and modern architecture and feats of engineering alike. I bought it for my father last Christmas and,as a competent draughtsman himself, he was very impressed.
Dibnah is famous for being a lovably eccentric steeple-jack and steam enthusiast, but I had no idea he was so interested in architecture, and his draughtsmanship is consistently thorough and beautiful, complemented by Dibnah's beautiful copperplate inscriptions and David Hall's notes on the architectural and engineering features of the places depicted.
This book is perfect for Dibnah fans and architecture enthusiasts alike, a lovely insight into another side of Fred Dibnah.
