Glasgow Scotland Pictorial Book Aug 30, 2007
You can find lots of books on Edinburgh but few on the highlights and beauty (yes, beauty) of Glasgow. No longer Scotland's "second city", Glasgow has become a worthwhile destination for many reasons. This book focuses on the architecture of the city, but in doing so, becomes a travelogue of not to miss places when you visit. Well done.
Good vendor, got book to me quickly, it was just as I wanted it to be. Highly recommend.
