For the second Task in “Friends with an old book” we were asked to choose three bookspreads we found interesting and write and additional Text of 100-150 words in which we had to say why we chose them.
Book: Mémoires sur les objets les plus importants de l’architecture
For my first bookspread I chose one of the first illustrations that can be found in the book. It shows the side view of a building. The reason why I chose it ist he fact that when I look at it I can kind of understand what ist about and how the building works, something I wouldn´t have been able to do one year ago.
The second bookspread shows Corinthian columns. It is something, that fascinated me since I heard of it in my first year of Latin in Gymnasium.
Lastly you can see a bookspread with one page of text and another page of drawings. I really liked the layout of these pages because because the illustrations make it easier to understand what the text is about.
