|display_description||"This a book about ten real castles. Each castle is illustrated by a fabulous cross-section that reveals its interior, and is described by a lively text on an important day in its history"--Front jkt. flap. Best-selling author, Stephen Biesty, famous for his "Incredible Cross-Sections" books, has now turned his attention to ten actual castles, as they were on ten historic dates (his 1994 book "Castle" focused on a single, imaginary castle). In his new, never-before-published book, Castles, he presents ten real castles each at a singular historic moment, from the 12th to the 19th century, in Europe, the Middle East, and Japan. A partial list includes, Chateau Gaillard, France, 1198; Krak des Chevaliers, Syria, 1271; Windsor Castle, England, 1344; Castel Sant' Angelo, Italy, 1527; Osaka Castle, Japan, 1614. Each castle is illustrated with fascinating precision over a double-page spread, followed by a lively and informative two-page account of the history of the castle in its time. The combination of illustration and text brings both history and architecture to life. This may be the best-ever book about castles.|
