RAILWAY STATIONS
By Charles Sheppard
8 5/8 x 12 1/8 in. (220 x 310mm) 80 pages. Hardcover. Over 90 illustrations. Railroads transformed not just common means of transportation but cities, countries, and continents. Trains and their engines became emblems of a new era, as were the buildings which served as their departure points and destinations. This type of building presented an entirely new challenge for architects and engineers, for nothing like a railway station had ever been built, or needed, before. Not simply imposing examples of civic architecture, these structures also represent massive feats of engineering designed to enclose enormous spaces and accomodate thousands of travelers. This authoritative volume traces and celebrates the history and technical development of these hubs of transportation from the earliest wooden buildings to the most modern structures.

RENAISSANCE, THE
By Susan Wright
8 5/8 x 12 1/4. in. (220 x 310mm) 128 pages. Hardcover. Over 100 illustrations. The Renaissance was a period of cultural growth that began in Italy around 1400 and spread throughout northern Europe over the course of two hundred years. Rejecting the values and stylized conventions of medieval Gothic and Byzantine forms, highly energetic and creative artists, using classical models along with decorative lines and colors, created artworks that reflected the importance of human will. They also rediscovered the necessity of observing the natural world to best express drama and emotion in human terms. Artists as diverse as Donatello and Titian, Bruegel and Durer, Correggio, Mantegna, and Van Eyck are represented in this volume along with the giants of the High Renaissance, Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Raphael.
