Bridges is a fun primer for anyone interested in learning more about these incredible structures.


Anecdotal details provide a sense of each structure s cultural and practical significance for example, during the inauguration of the Brooklyn Bridge, circus elephants were paraded across to demonstrate its sturdiness. Brief profiles of the bridges designers and discussions of other notable bridges round out a meticulously illustrated, thoroughly explained study of bridge-making. Publishers Weekly
