An erudite and excellently illustrated book.(Arquitectura Viva)

Both approaches in their purist form are systems. There are many examples in the book where these approaches are unclearly combined ( roman painting, early Italian perspective- Giotto for one)
An interesting book. I would have given this book 5 stars for textual content, however the illustrations are too small for most of this book. The book production/Design values are off the mark. It ignores the aesthetic importance of illustrating with prints and art on this subject!!. You can mostly make out the connection being made in the text but I want to see the prints as clearly as the diagrammatic illustrations! Also besides the scale of the plates being small they are of low photographic quality in many if not all cases. I don't get it, this book would be 200% better with larger and higher quality plates.
