Invissibale
A part of the series History of World Architecture originally published by Electa in Italian in 1971-7 under a general editorship of Pier Luigi Nervi, it was translated to English and published by Abrams in 1971-80 in b&w only, but at 10 x 11 1/4 inches. Subsequently, the series was reedited, shrunk to 8 5/8 x 9 1/2 inches, and published by Electa / Rizzoli in 1985-9 with a few color photos added including each front cover. In the early 2000's, the series was reissued by Phaidon unchanged except for the front cover photo. It is a pictorial "Ferrari" of history of architecture books. Almost every page contains one or - usually - more than one illustration as photo, plan, section, elevation, axonometric view, etc. of the highest quality. They depict the best examples of topical architecture covering the most significant ones. The text was written by one of the best experts in the field. While relatively concise, it is still comprehensive and complete enough even for students of architecture.
(528 illustrations, including 82 diagrams, floor plans, and reconstructions in the Abrams' edition, and the Electa / Rizzoli edition with the same contents is divided into two volumes.)
FRONT FLAP ABRAMS' EDITION:
Oriental Architecture bears witness to the richness and diversity of the Oriental genius in architecture: Peking's Forbidden City and the Great Wall of China; the fabulous terraced sanctuary of Borobodur in Java; India's Great Stupa at Sanchi and the painted caves of Ajanta; the exquisite temples and shrines at Nara and Kyoto in Japan; the sublime temple complexes of Angkor in Cambodia; the imperial city of Hue in Vietnam; the royal necropoIls of Seoul in Korea; and the fortress-cities of Toprak-kala and Ajaz-kala in Central Asia - names that read like a litany of Eastern magnificence. These and many other monuments are concisely and informatively discussed and illustrated.
