Colossus explores some of the greatest feats of engineering in history, from ancient pyramids to enormous bridges to towering skyscrapers.

From enormous bridges and tunnels that run for hundreds of miles, to towering skyscrapers and massive space stations ... discover how some of Earth's most colossal structures were made in beautifully illustrated detail.

Colossus includes the Sphinx, Golden Gate Bridge, Shanghai Tower, an International Space Station, and much more!
