Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0395267110, Paperback)

A wonderous portfolio that has to be seen to be savored-or even believed for that matter. Here are the plans for the Tower of Pisa-on a skewed drafting table, the Eiffel Tower tipped over across from the Seine, the ruins of a McDonald's stand following some future Vesuvius, the disastrous meeting of the Great and Lesser Walls of China, and many other gems.

Humorous architectural sketches of known monuments and objects.
