Sunrise to Highrise: A Wallbook of Architecture Through the Ages

Author(s): Lucy Dalzell


This large concertina book forms a timeline of global architecture through the ages, starting in the Stone Age, and ending in the twenty-first century. More than 60 buildings, meticulously pencil-drawn by Lucy Dalzell in her inimitable intricate and warm style, are included here, among them the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Taj Mahal, Cologne cathedral, La Sagrada Familia, the Chrysler Building, Fallingwater, Seoul Tower, Centre Pompidou, Guggenheim Bilbao, Burj Khalifa and the World Trade Center. Short texts (in neon print) identify each building and describe its architectural significance. The book features a greyboard cover, and is printed on dense stock that can be opened out and refolded without damage. It can also be hung on a wall like a mural, or read as a conventional book. "Sunrise to High-Rise" makes a beautiful gift book for architecture and illustration enthusiasts and their young ones.
