Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA-This hand-sized guide begins with an overview of the Age of Exploration, then concentrates on Renaissance architecture and design. The insides and outsides of buildings and furnishings of palaces and apartments, villas and farmhouses, public buildings, churches, gardens, theaters, piazzas, and the ideal city are all given attention. The double-page format includes many well-annotated photographs and reproductions. The book has sufficient information for brief reports or can be used as a good beginning for a more comprehensive investigation.-Barbara Hawkins, Oakton High School, Fairfax, VA
