A picture is worth a thousand words – Des Martins perfectly flaunts this idiom in these three spreads in his book “L’expérience de l’architecture militaire” . And what better way to describe to describe architecture than through pictures or in this case drawings. Des Martins covered full pages with drawings and no text what so ever, but somehow we as readers still see the direct correlation between the text before and after and the drawings. The drawings are extremely detailed and precisely drawn. Located at the end of every chapter, drawings like these are a sublime way to finish a chapter an d begin a new one.
