An exceptionally approachable, thorough, informative guide to the theory and technique of designing classical buildings, as taught by a graduate of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, this book, generously illustrated with sketches, freehand diagrams, renderings, and photographs, gives a lively, contemporary reality to what sometimes seems a remote subject. It is a practical text for learning how to design buildings in the classical tradition today.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[D]elightful: . . . Thoughtful, intelligently illustrated, confidently argued, and very beautiful. . . . [A] most welcome and timely volume." -- Apollo: The International Magazine of Art and Antiques Overview
"Beaux Arts take on modern classical architecture-now seen as a broad church including modern masters such as Loos and Wright." -- Architecture Today
"That this architect is one of the last graduates of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts...should warrant this particular scrapbook a welcome place on the bookshelves of those teaching, working in or interested in the continuance of the Classical architectural tradition...[A]n armchair grand tour, in the company of an astute tour guide." -- Clem Labine's Period Homes
