Tutte l’opere d’architettura, et prospetiua by Serlio Sebastiano - Archived
I chose this image first because I think it is one of the most important images in a book. It is the one that marks the beginning of the book after the introduction, it is the one that marks the beginning of learning through reading. Moreover, this page is beautiful, the drawing printed on it stands out among all the others in the book. It is a drawing representing a door of great splendour on which it is written: First book of architecture by Sebastiano Serlio Bolognese in which he deals with the first principles of geometry with ease and with patent. With this inscription one understands the purpose of this book and one feels like making a fuss to find out more.
