Description

Mali, in North Africa, is home to the largest building made out of clay; the structure only took one year to complete. For the construction of Neuschwanstein Castle,
465 tons of marble were hefted to the Alps to the building site. The Atomium in Brussels boasts the longest escalators in Europe. The largest mosque in the world is as big as 56 football fields. The Illustrated Atlas of Architecture and Marvelous Monuments presents
a world of breathtaking build- ings and their incredible stories through illustrated maps and engaging factsheets.
Sarah Tavernier and Alexandre Verhille have already deftly shown with Legendary Routes of the World that they are experts in showcasing the biggest and the best. Now, for The Illustrated Atlas of Architecture and Marvelous Monuments, they researched the longest bridges, tallest towers, the most impressive cultural sites, and plenty of curiosities. Exciting facts are woven together with a myriad of architectural styles; the material feats are skillfully and artfully placed upon bold maps, situating the constructions within a geographic context.

Biography Artist:
Alexandre Verhille illustrates maps for a variety of international newspapers and magazines. He draws inspiration from novelists such as Jack Kerouac and Jack London and comicbook writers in the vein of Hugo Pratt. When he is not working on new maps, he plans adventures around the world and illustrates children's and travel books.
Review:
"The order of presentation begins the tour in Europe and concludes in South America, and the diversity of building styles and types should open the most jingoistic eyes. A well-designed compendium of information about world architecture, if a mite formal."

—Kirkus
"Verhille's background as an illustrative cartographer shines at the very beginning of the Atlas...The reader is invited on a journey around the world to discover architectural masterpieces from different cultures and eras."
