The other book I read from Art In Detail, Egyptian Art, I rated 4 stars. Modern Architecture gets 4.5 because of the beautiful pictures.
Again, Art In Detail provides timelines, great fonts, interesting facts, and great pictures.
And, once again, the facts in here are mostly as short captions to great pictures. Everything was positioned perfectly on the page.
This is a great book for anyone that enjoys reading about and seeing beautiful structures.
Buildings and Architects. Full color.
