My book is called the architecture of Palladio and it`s written by Leoni Giacomo.The book was originally written in Italian language and then translated to english.The cover indicates that the book is written by Leoni Giacomo it is kept simple. By just looking at the cover you can`t indicate anything about the book itself. Theres’s no detailed engravings, nor any illustrations.According to the table of content, one can assume that the book tells you something about the five orders as well as the construction of private and public houses. When looking at the pages itself, one realises that there is a long explanatory text followed by supporting drawings, sections and floor-plans of buildings and other architectural structures. One can only assume it’s a book about architecture. Due to the amount of texts and illustrations, it has an overwhelming effect on someone who’s flipping through the pages. The aesthetically pleasing images spark your interest on the topic.There’s lots of drawings and illustrations, like for example temples, bridges, streets, ways, squares and basilicas or courts. A very diverse variety of said structures can be found in the book. The book was written in 1742 in London, therefore a lot of time has passed since it was written, yet it’s surprising how it still seems to fit into our time. When looking over the pages of Palladio, it catches your eye that there’s very detailed and neatly done illustrations, as well as colums with ornamental drawings.
