Historical Setting: Middle Ages

This award-winning book recreates the building of a French Gothic cathedral, from the hewing down of half a forest to the placement of the last sheet of lead on the spire. Macaulay's black-and-white pen studies and diagrams are beautifully drawn and accompanied by brief, clear narrative. His changing perspectives powerfully convey the immensity of the undertaking.
