a novelty book with pop up diagrams of each "wonder" - although only one small page of text devoted to each "wonder", book is still informative and most unusual, but fascinating [also first book i have seen that states "printed and bound in Colombia] ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0877017077, Hardcover)

The Seven Ancient Wonders of the World were built during a period that spanned more than two thousand years. Their size, design, and craftsmanship were without equal in the ancient world. And their legendary grandeur remains with us to this day. Of the seven, only one is still standing. However, drawing upon historical descriptions, Celia King has reconstructed all of them in miniature splendor. Brief historical descriptions are accompanied by magnificent collage illustrations that literally leap from the page and evoke the richness of a long-lost time. This is a jewel-like treasure that readers of every age will turn to again and again.
