Read full description of the books:
I would recommend this book to anyone who is reading or enjoyed "Pillars of the Earth". I say that because "Pillars of the Earth" is one of my wife's favorite books and she has read it several times. Although she usually doesn't care for 'my' books, she looked through this one.
Inside are plenty of drawings that show the building of a cathedral, from start to finish. Not only are the different parts of the cathedral shown but the different crafts are mentioned and illustrated that helped build it. It is easy for one to get an idea of just how they built such a monument without the use of power tools, let alone computers.
There is just enough written word to explain the basics so one can easily answer one's own questions. For instance, in this story the author mentions a master builder being replaced when he fell to his death. Yea, it was dangerous work.
This book has been around a while and if you are going to check out "Pillars" from the local library I would suggest you ask for this one too. You will get an idea of just what 'Builder Tom' had to work with.

Read information about the authorDavid Macaulay, born in 1946, was eleven when his parents moved from England to Bloomfield, New Jersey. He found himself having to adjust from an idyllic English childhood to life in a fast paced American city. During this time he began to draw seriously, and after graduating from high school he enrolled in the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). After spending his fifth year at RISD in Rome on the European Honors Program, he received a bachelor’s degree in architecture and vowed never to practice. After working as an interior designer, a junior high school teacher, and a teacher at RISD, Macaulay began to experiment with creating books. He published his first book, Cathedral, in 1973. Following in this tradition, Macaulay created other books—including City, Castle, Pyramid, Mill, Underground, Unbuilding, and Mosque—that have provided the explanations of the how and the why in a way that is both accessible and entertaining. From the pyramids of Egypt to the skyscrapers of New York City, the human race’s great architectural and engineering accomplishments have been demystified through Macaulay's elaborate show-and-tells. Five of these titles have been made into popular PBS television programs.
