Visions of Heaven: The Dome in European Architecture
Princeton Architectural Press | English | 2005-10-06 | ISBN: 1568985495 | 192 pages | PDF | 34 MB
With a full-page color plate of the dome of a great European monument on every page, turning the pages of this volume is not unlike pressing one's eye to a kaleidoscope, with ribs, mosaics, stone, gilt, stucco, wood, or painting spinning in patterns around an ever- present still center. The captions note the name of the monument and its date or dates of construction. A chapter by Victoria Hammond (an art historian in Australia) describing domes in European architecture follows the photos.
