Building the Book Cathedral : It has been twenty-six years since the publication of Cathedral, which introduced readers to David Macaulay's unique gift for demystifying even the most complex of concepts. Building the Book Cathedral includes the content of Cathedral in its entirety. Here Macaulay traces the evolution of the creative process in "building" that first book from initial concept to finished drawings. He introduces the basic elements of structure and sequence. He explains why one angle of a drawing is better for conveying an idea than another. He shows how perspective, scale, and contrast can be used to connect a reader with concepts, and how placement of a picture on a page can make a difference in the way information is communicated.
