Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This is an ambitious book, carefully edited and profusely illustrated. It is hard not to be stirred by the questions he raises: What were the origins of Greek and Roman architectural drawings? How did drawings determine the actual outcome of a building and a city? And, did architectural drawings affect aspects of intellectual life beyond architecture? -- Bryn Mawr Classical Review

“This book is a valuable contribution to a recent tradition of writings that have sought to get inside the working processes of Greek and Roman architects.” --American Journal of Archaeology

"The volume is an interesting addition to the recent literature on the art building in the Greek and Roman world."
Arctos
