My copy of Unbuilding by David Macaulay


Sketcher: David Macauley

“Never again will we see the Empire State Building in the same way, for in his carefully researched, meticulous account of how it might be unbuilt, David Macaulay has provided an exciting new perspective on the most characteristic form of American architecture.” — Front flap
