Building the Book Cathedral

Building the Book Cathedral - David Macaulay My brother fell in love with the book [b:Cathedral: The Story of Its Construction|769471|Cathedral The Story of Its Construction|David Macaulay|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1348571925s/769471.jpg|755531] sometime in grade school, when the book was still relatively new. We attribute his becoming an architect in part to this and David Macaulay's other works.

My sons fell in love with cross section books and [b:The New Way Things Work|109533|The New Way Things Work|David Macaulay|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1348848540s/109533.jpg|18326198] when they were about 7 and 9. They'd read and enjoyed [b:Cathedral: The Story of Its Construction|769471|Cathedral The Story of Its Construction|David Macaulay|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1348571925s/769471.jpg|755531] as well. So when I saw [b:Building the Book Cathedral|456623|Building the Book Cathedral|David Macaulay|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1347561571s/456623.jpg|755531] in the library, I had to bring it home.

It's been a hit and I enjoyed it, more for nostalgia than for the merits of the revisions that David Macaulay introduces in hindsight.
