"[A] richly illustrated, carefully explained introduction to classical architecture... Highly recommended." ―ChoiceAn exceptionally approachable, thorough, informative guide to the theory and technique of designing classical buildings, as taught by a graduate of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, this book, generously illustrated with sketches, freehand diagrams, renderings, and photographs, gives a lively, contemporary reality to what sometimes seems a remote subject. It is a practical text for learning how to design buildings in the classical tradition today.

- Architecture Today
“That this architect is one of the last graduates of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts...should warrant this particular scrapbook a welcome place on the bookshelves of those teaching, working in or interested in the continuance of the Classical architectural tradition...[A]n armchair grand tour, in the company of an astute tour guide.”
