The Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, & the Tower of London are just a few of the hundreds of remarkable souvenir buildings in this book. No type of building, from any place or time, has escaped the collection of Ace Architects (authors David Weingarten & Margaret Majua), regarded as the best single collection of its kind. The heyday of souvenir buildings was the early decades of the 20th cent., & the range of buildings included is encyclopedic: there are replicas of holy places & football stadiums; dams & bridges; castles & forts; teepees & skyscrapers; ancient monuments & commemorative sights. Now, you never have to leave home again to experience the architectural wonders of the world. 100 photos; 60 in full color.

Where can you see the Empire State Building, the Eiffel Tower, St. Peter's Cathedral, and the Great Pyramids of Giza all in one place? In this delightful book, thanks to authors who happen to be obsessive collectors of miniature replicas of every great piece of architecture in the world. From their vast collection are presented 1,000 tiny stadiums, holy places, bridges, monuments, skyscrapers, and residences. Many are more than just souvenir pieces, serving also as functional objects like pencil sharpeners, thermometers, salt and pepper shakers, and ashtrays. The pleasure of this book derives from its refreshing placement of our most memorable architectural achievements on a small, toylike scale. This appropriately small-scale book makes a perfect gift for anyone passionate about architecture or collecting.
