Product Description

Review

'It's a publication that will be welcomed by scholars, setting out a new overview of the subject and offering thought-provoking insights into both its emergence and development. . .The sheer breadth of this analysis is deeply impressive, carrying the reader from the familiar heartlands of the Romanesque in France, England and Germany to Eastern Europe and the Iberian Peninsula.' --John Goodall, "Country Life"--John Goodall"Country Life" (06/25/2014)

'As an exemplar of the Roman tradition embraced by Charlemagne, Chelmsford is invoked by Professor Eric Fernie, the former director of the Courtauld, in his splendid new volume "Romanesque Architecture," an addition to the Pelican History of Art published by Yale./i>--Christopher Howse"The Daily Telegraph" (08/23/2014)

'While this book will be much used as a textbook, it is a great deal more than that and demands to be read as a whole. It is a thoughtful and provocative study of Romanesque architecture, and the old adage - always leave your audience wanting more - certainly applies.'--Alan Borg, "Burlington Magazine."
--Alan Borg"Burlington Magazine" (01/01/2015)

'What a book this is, this new volume in the Pelican History of Art. Utterly logical in the arrangement of its arguments, packed with maps and photographs, this is the "vade mecum "for every traveller... An almost perfect tool of instruction.'--Brian Sewell, "Evening Standard."

The distillation of a life's work studying and teaching from one of the finest historians of the Romanesque period of architecture. One of my intellectual heroes and a superb book. Every page a treat!

HASH(0x92dc53a8) out of 5 stars A vast array of knowledge hidden beneath an absolutely disgusting typesetting 15 Feb. 2016
By Christopher Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
While the book is certainly knowledgeable and I don't doubt Eric Fernie's skills when it comes to describing and giving us intellectual information on the subject the book is horrible with typesetting making it an incredibly painful read. Rivers, orphans, misaligned type dot every page. Theysometimesforgettoincludespaces. They hyphenate names and force single letters down to the line below making people's names transform from Josep Puigi to Joseph Puig i. The spacing between wordsseem erratic and nonsensical, as a Graphic Designer/Typesetter I've seen students who outperform this book in typesetting.
Ultimately maybe if you don't mind these errors it may be a fascinating read, but I found each and every error cringe inducing and it made it impossible to turn past page 7. But I had to for my class. Seriously the typesetting of this book should've prevented it from ever being sold.
