We have 3 copies of ‘A Journey through 50 Skylines of the World’s Greatest Cities’ by Yolanda Zappaterra and Jan Fuscoe, illustrated by Jenny Seddon, to give away this month.
Each city’s skyline is unique and hints at what lies below on the street, indeed the skyline is so often a display of a city’s very finest buildings and a visual representation of its history.
From Manhattan’s distinctive, well known features to the centuries old architecture of Rome, Skylines leads the reader through the skies to explore fifty celebrated, dynamic and frequently, splendid locations around the world. If you are interested in how buildings tell the human story, this book is for you!
Superb and evocative illustrations appear with a brief guide to each city, detailing their unique tales, geography and atmosphere. Insights to the marvellous landmarks are given, often highlighting remarkable buildings that define their location: royal palaces, fortresses, religious buildings, monuments and staggering skyscrapers.
In order to win a copy of this very special book, please tell us which city has your favourite Skyline and why in the comments section below. We’ll pick out the best entries and advise the book winners early in November.
