by David Macaulay
Text and black and white illustrations show how the Romans planned and constructed their cities for the people who lived within them
Superb design, magnificent illustrations, and clearly presented information distinguish all of David Macaulay's books. Whether chronicling the monumental achievements of past civilizations or satirizing modern architecture, he is concerned above all in how constructions are made and what their effects are on people and their lives.
