If you are interested in a detailed examination of gothic architecture and enjoy the scholarship surrounding the intricacies of the subject, there is likely no better place to start than here. Supplement it with an engineer's point of view (The Construction of Gothic Cathedrals: A Study of Medieval Vault Erection and The Stone Skeleton: Structural Engineering of Masonry Architecture) and perhaps a graphic designer's visual deconstruction (Principles and Elements of Medieval Church Architecture of Western Europe) and you have an excellent (and thorough) basis on which to build an extended study of the subject.
The book is printed on an oversized 8 1/2 by 11 format, on high quality heavyweight and glossy paper. At almost 500 pages, its quite physically heavy, but the quality of the images (many in color and full-page) make one yearn for the hardback edition (if it can be afforded). If not, the paperback edition is equally lovely for about 1/3 the price of the hardback. Highly recommended.
