Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Written by the same author/designer team who produced "Skyscrapers", this book is a spectacle of stone, steel, wood and concrete portrayed in a unique and imposing size--page spreads open up to a full yard. All the world's great bridges are dazzlingly presented and described, from the ancient Roman Pont du Gard to London's Tower Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Tsing Ma Suspension Bridge in Hong Kong. 200 photos.

Review:
"'Bridges' offers a luxurious tour of every kind of bridge from the Golden Gate to Pont Neuf in Paris, from covered bridges to movable bridges to iron, concrete, pylon, cantilever, steel, railway, aqueduct, limestone, caisson and marketplace (Ponte Vecchio in Florence) bridges that always seem to bring a kind of peace to whatever rolling waters they cross."

San Francisco Chronicle Book Review, 12/21/1997
