Hundreds of illustrations depict gargoyles and other grotesque figures from centuries-old buildings such as the Louvre, Notre Dame, and historic structures throughout Europe. A bonus CD-ROM features all images from the book. Drawn from a four-volume collection dating from the early twentieth century, this anthology offers a choice selection of masks, busts, and cartouches as well as figures from fountains, pedestals, doorways, and other sources. Images include human and animal gargoyles from the fa_ades of cathedrals at Reims, Bayeux, Chartres, and Cologne, along with griffins and sphinxes from Notre Dame, grotesque heads from the gardens of Versailles, and lion-headed gargoyles from Pompeii, Assisi, and the Vatican Museums. Architects, graphic artists, and designers will find endless inspiration amid this rich panoply of historic art. Dover original selection from Materiaux et documents d'architecture, de sculpture et des touts les arts industriels, c. 1915.
