5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Primer, 21 April 2012
This review is from: The Classical Language of Architecture (World of Art) (Paperback)
This slim & reasonably priced volume is the perfect primer for anyone interested in architecture in general & the classical style in particular.

In just over 100 pages, the author takes us from classical times through to the influence on the modern day, producing a fascinating overview of the key elements & interpretations in this style.

The are plenty of black & white plans, photographs & illustrations but I would still have liked a few more. There is in an invaluable Glossary at the end & a reference section.

The text is easy to read & the author really guides the newcomer into what can be a complicated & confusing field.

This volume will school you in all the basics of classical architecture & really help you to enjoy & appreciate it's influence on us here in the UK. You'll be able to stun your friends with your new found knowledge when you next visit a stately home or the National Trust!
