Castle

USD $11.95

To this day I still have not found a better book series to inspire main lesson book images and provide enrichment for students studying the Medieval/Middle Ages Block in 6th or 7th grade! This is also a great book for the Renaissance block. Or how about using it in the 8th grade Elizabethan Era block? This book is perfect for inspiring students and teachers in their drawings of historical castles and understanding them more deeply. This book is AMAZING! – Kristie, Earthschooling.com

The word itself conjures up mystery, romance, intrigue, and grandeur. What could be more perfect for an author/illustrator who has continually stripped away the mystique of architectural structures that have long fascinated modern man? With typical zest and wry sense of humor punctuating his drawings, David Macaulay traces the step-by-step planning and construction of both castle and town.

Description

The word itself conjures up mystery, romance, intrigue, and grandeur. What could be more perfect for an author/illustrator who has continually stripped away the mystique of architectural structures that have long fascinated modern man? With typical zest and wry sense of humor punctuating his drawings, David Macaulay traces the step-by-step planning and construction of both castle and town.

“What David Macaulay can draw — churches, cities, pyramids — he does better than any pen-and-ink illustrator in the world. Castle once again goes through a brick-by-brick assembly, employing cross-hatches and thin black lines to evoke a medieval place and period.” – Time Magazine
