Drawing & drawings; Architecture
As one of Australia's leading architects, David Holm is passionate about drawing, the built environment and Italy. These three passions are brought together in Drawing Italy to create this intelligent and beautiful guide book to architecture of Italy. Why Italy? Italy is arguably the most geographically compact crucible of western architecture in the world. Etruscan, Roman, Byzantine, Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Mannerist, Baroque, Neoclassicism, Fascist, Modernist and contemporary architecture are all represented, sometimes iconically, within Italy. David explains each architectural style as he takes us on a grand tour of Italy region by region, showing all the piazzas, chiesi and palazzo. His drawings are remarkable for their detail and beauty. Designed for use on the ground (hence the flexi-bound paperback format) as well as in the armchair, Drawing Italy shows us all the major sites of Florence, Rome ,Venice, Sienna as well as lesser known but memorable churches and buildings.
