The title of my book is “Regola delli cinque ordini d’architettura” and was published in the middle of the 16th century. This title reveals the content of the book. This book is about the five classical orders. This title attracted at its time those architecture enthusiasts who wanted to learn more about ancient building methods and already had a basic knowledge of architecture. The book was written by the Italian architect Giacomo Barozzi da Vignola. He wrote the book to put these architectural outline elements in relation to each other and to nominate them with fixed numbers thus making this knowledge available to a wide audience. So, Vignola presents the established orders of columns in the following order: Tuscan Doric, Corinthian and Composite. Each of these orders is divided into five sections: Colonnade, Arcade with Pedestal, Individual Forms of Pedestal and Base, Individual Forms of Capital and entablature. Additional special cases and construction instructions are given at the end. The book consists primarily of illustrations. These illustrations show vividly the different orders of columns, each of which is noted only with essential information, and one therefore needs basic knowledge to get the full potential out of the book. The book has a very large format by modern standards, but the book benefits from this format as it consists mainly of images, allowing for a higher level of detail. For the content, the book is relatively thick because, as mentioned several times, illustrations are the content. In the historical context, the book was published during the Renaissance and Humanism. It was the time of renewal movements, old structures were questioned and was tried with scientific methods to bring humanity forward.
