Underground

by David Macaulay
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin
Trade Paperback, 112 pages
Price: $9.95

With typical zest and a wry sense of humor, David Macaulay has revealed the maze of intricate support systems that exist beneath the surface of a busy city street. His two- and three-dimensional cutaway views create a visual tour de force, capturing the staggering technical feats of our modern urban underground.

Text and drawings describe the subways, sewers, building foundations, telephone and power systems, columns, columns, cables, pipes, tunnels, and other underground elements of a large modern city.
