Description from the publisher:
An author and artist who has continually stripped away the
mystique of architectural structures that have long fascinated
modern people, David Macaulay here reveals the methods and
materials used to design and construct a mosque in late-sixteenth-
century Turkey. Through the fictional story and Macaulay"s distinctive full-color illustrations, readers will learn not only how such monumental structures were built but also how they functioned in relation to the society they served.
As always, Macaulay has given a great deal of attention to the
relationship between pictures and text, creating another brilliant
celebration of an architectural wonder.
