Summary

Summary

Here is a celebration of towering achievements in architecture and artistry in a beautifully illustrated collection of monumental towers, buildings, and memorials from around the world. Whether built to celebrate the victories of war, the passing of presidents, or the loss of a nation's young, these monuments range in scale from the epic to the intimate and represent the visions of some of history's most ingenious architects, artists, and sculptors. The Arch of Titus, the Arc de Tromphe, the St. Louis Arch Gateway, the Viet Nam War Memorial, and the pyramids of the pharoahs are just a few of the moving structures illustrated. This book contains 90 full-color photographs.
