The Text is divided into paragraphs that are average sized. The whole text is always centered on the pages and there are empty margins on the side. The font seems to be Times New Roman and the font size is rather small. The headers on the pages 19-33 are written in capital letters and define certain areas of the palace that the book is about.
From page 34 until the rest of the book there are only illustrations such as architectural floor plans and perspective views of the palace and it’s natrue around it. The pictures are only on the right page when the book is spread.
The images are numbered and are all listed on page 19-33. Each image is described as a „P L A T E“. The pictures start at I (1) and go up to LXI (61). There are also some foldout spreds within the pages that give the reader an enlaged version of certain views on the palace. Each illustration also gets a short description where two or three sentences describe what the reader can see.
The illustrations take up the most part of the book and live only little space for their descprition. The importance in the book is clearly focused on the pictures and the illustrations and the written part is secondary.
The book reads as some sort of picture book. With the help of the book the reader manages to understand how the palace looked and how it was structured and built. It also gives the reader an image of the circumstances the people back then had lived in. It can also be used to classify the art style that was used at the palace at Spalatro. The pictures show very detailed view on the huge but at the same time very nicely decorated pillars.
