This fascinating book examines lighthouses inside and out, from the primitive beacon and the fabled Pharos of the ancient world to the "Texas towers" of modern times.

I have collected lighthouses for years and have had a fascination with them since childhood. My boyfriend bought this book for me for Valentine's Day and it is one of the nicest gifts I have ever received. Truly a must for lighthouse lovers.

This book combines detailed technical information that includes engineering blueprints and diagrams with beautiful photography of hundreds of lighthouses from around the world including fold-out pages. I would recommend this book for anyone interested in lighthouses.
