I purchased this book from a local shopping mall as reference material for a scale model replica of the former World Trade Center Complex I'm building. I was totally stunned when I looked at the high quality photos that are in this book. I got way more than I paid for, and it will be a great help for me when I build my model. I would surely recommend this book to anyone!
I have given this book for several birthday presents and everyone who recieved it has loved it. This book is unique, great presentation of an event that changed all our lives. I'm giving them for Christmas presents also.
I own many photographic books on the World Trade Center towers, but this one truly stands out against the rest. The colors and angles of many of the photos are outstanding. Every page is overflowing with detail, and you are always taken to a different part of the World Trade Center complex. There is also great detail found in the 9/11 photos, much of which makes the reality and enormity of the catastrophe come alive again in an eerie way. But I found this book more as a reflection on the life that once was, capturing fully the 'beauty' (if it could possibly be called that) of New York's beloved Twin Towers. I highly recommend it!!!
