Weird! Second time I've had a post go missing! I posted one from work this afternoon between joroas' first one and Operator5's reply and saw it in the listings. Now, it's gone!
Anyway...I had suggested trying to find a couple of books. One is Peter Connolly's 'Pompeii', which is chock-full of beautiful colour artwork and photos regarding the lost city. The other is David Macaulay's brilliant 'City - A Story of Roman Planning and Construction'. It's a study of the construction of a Roman city from ground survey to completion, done in nice, clear, black and white drawings. Both authors do similar books in the same vein. Connolly has a whole series of them on Greece and Rome while Macaulay does ones on a Castle, Cathedral, Mill and Pyramid, among others. Now, lets see if this
post stays where it's sent!
