Item description for Castle by David Macaulay...

Text and detailed drawings follow the planning and construction of a "typical" castle and adjoining town in thirteenth-century Wales.

Publishers 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Castle?

Fascinating and engaging book!  Jun 8, 2007
We bought this book for our four year old who always wants to know how things work. He, and his Daddy are both fascinated by this book. It is a work of art, and a historic fictional work in one. The pictures are all in black and white, but the line drawings are incredibly detailed. This book will be a favorite in our library for years, and I can see him reading it to his kids one day.
This is a really neat, intricately drawn and written book  May 18, 2007
I remember reading this book back when I was in Junior High and High School. I'm 30 now (ugh!) I have always been fascinated with history (especially why folks did what they did when they did it) and while characters are fictitious, the design and building practices as well as the situations involved in the story are truly as it happened. The pictures are highly detailed such that you almost feel like you leap into the pages of the story. I primarily purchased this for a bit of nostalgia but would highly recommend this product to anyone who might be interested.
For Knights in Shining Armour  Feb 22, 2007
Castle. The word's meaning is amazing. And David Macaulay has done it again! His book, Castle, shows how a castle is built in the Middle Ages. His illustrations show the castle (and the town around it) is built. Mortar and stone by stone, a castle is built. In the time this castle's construction is commencing, there is a war going on, and then it's under attack when it's finished. David shows how the castle withstands a siege from the Welsh prince and his army. This book's drawings are amazing! The book is quite detailed and well described. The book is the Eighth Wonder of the World says I, its one of the best books I've ever read! This book is for knights in shining armour! - February, 2007.
Captivating as a child, captivating as an adult  Feb 17, 2007
I read this book in first grade and never managed to put it down then, and I certainly can't do it now. The drawings are splended, the text is perfectly functional and the combination makes for a splendid book.

I recommend this book to anyone interested in castles, medieval life, and pictures with text.
Loved the book, Arrived in good time.  Feb 7, 2007
This is a good reference if your interested in knowing how castles were built.
