Rated 5 out of 5 by from Art students take notice! As a highschool art teacher, I,as well as our art students have found this book to be invaluable for quick, consice, easy to understand information on historical architectural features as well as excellent hand drawn illustrations of everything from "acanthus" to "ziggurat". It's great as inspiration for both art history and studio projects. Our school library's soft covered copy has become so dog-earred and weathered from overuse that it has become an ancient relic itself. Time to invest in a hard cover copy!
