Tunis and Sloane blended well written history with well done pen and pencil illustrations.
In this book, David Macaulay expertly describes and illustrates the construction of the imaginary Roman city of Verbonia.
I highly recommend CITY, and Macaulay's other architectural books, to both children and adults.
