Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0500341958, Hardcover)

This first ever comprehensive study of brick follows the story of brick from 5,000 BC to its use in building today, via the vast baths and basilicas of ancient Rome, through the wonders of Gothic brick in Germany, the majestic temples of Pagan and Mughal mosques in Iran, to its modern revival. Illustrated with specially-taken photographs, "Brick" is at once an historical account of how bricks have been employed by architects of every period, a technical survey of brickmaking and bricklaying, and an essay in architectural and cultural history.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:08:45 -0400)

'Brick' is a worldwide survey of one of the most ubiquitous materials, filled with speciality commissioned colour plates, covering everything from Mesopotamian mud bricks to innovative architecture brickwork today.
