Editorial Reviews

    "Clearly labeled diagrams; a detailed, complete, and informative glossary; and the use of full-color spreads to bring the buildings and their inhabitants or parishioners to like make these excellent additions."
    School Library Journal

    "No mere colorization of the black-and-white originals of the first two books [Castle and Cathedral](thank goodness!), the all-new, often breathtaking images have been drawn by hand and then digitally colored."
    Kirkus, starred review
