It's not so much that the artistic imagination has changed, although of course buildings are of their time and fashion, but everything has to be cost-conscious now and there is no vision of the future. Almost everything that is built is subject to the constraints of budget which means prefabrication rather than work by true craftsmen who had the skills and talent to make everything by hand.

From the Egyptians to the not-too-distant past, public buildings of note, palaces, churches, abbeys and se
Wow, absolutely gorgeous! And absolutely huge. I don't think there's a better or more complete book on the market currently that encompasses all aspects of Romanesque. Packed full of wonderful colour illustrations and an insightful text, this is a book that I will visit again and again. Beautiful.
