I got this for my son when he was almost 6 and of course he didn't pay much attention, the illustrations being in black and white and the text being so instructive, however, this book got ME totally absorbed! Illustrations and explanations are very interesting, it's a fantastic book. Now that my son is 8 it's time to put it back to his library, he'll appreciate it now.

First of the series that I read, I love the series

The four books: Pyramid, Mill, City and Castle. I learned a lot about line drawing as a kid from these books. I copied his style and made my own subject matter, usually medieval towns. Inspiring and to be honest I'm not that into his full color ones from later years.
Άνουβις
A great old book I read as a kid and all libraries public and private should have at least one copy on the bookshelf.

Been wanting this for a good number of years. Read when when I was a kid; loved it then, love it now. A must have gift for any child with imagination. Th animated documentary of this book sparked a life long love of castles and medieval history when I was 8.
Zeus Wooden
