"No mere colorization of the black-and-white originals of the first two books [Castle and Cathedral](thank goodness!), the all-new, often breathtaking images have been drawn by hand and then digitally colored to harmonize, beautifully, with the look of Mosque."--Kirkus, starred review "Hold onto your old copies; but add this new version, too. All have much to offer, and comparison is fascinating: illustration, bookmaking, and communication continue to evolve."--The Horn Book, starred review"Though most libraries won't want to discard their copies of Cathedral and Castle, the new color artwork and updated content give this three-books-in-one volume high value and strong appeal."--School Library Journal, starred review Praise for The Way We Work "To his many fans, David Macaulay is nothing less than America's Explainer-in-Chief"--The Providence Journal "Humor thus occasionally leavens the information, which, though often complex and technical, is clearly and succinctly presented in double-page spreads, accompanied by an illuminating array of illustrations (including diagrams and cross-sections), often full of visual metaphors and striking angles. Nonfiction (reference books, in particular) rarely seems to get the respect it deserves, but Macaulay's latest ambitious, encyclopedic work commands it."--The Horn Book, starred review ." . . the accuracy, detail and depth of information make this an essential addition to most collections."--Kirkus Reviews "The wonder that is David Macaulay is at it again....The work of this Caldecott medal winner and recipient of the McArthur grant is always a must-have in any library."--VOYA (5Q4P), highlighted review Praise for Mosque"Macaulay offers an unusual, inspiring perspective into Islamic society that's removed from the charged headlines, and as in all his work, he conveys a contagious awe and wonder at the design and engineering feats that societies have accomplished." --Booklist, starred review "No mere colorization of the black-and-white originals of the first two books ["Castle" and "Cathedral"](thank goodness!), the all-new, often breathtaking images have been drawn by hand and then digitally colored to harmonize, beautifully, with the look of "Mosque.""
