Skyscrapers

By Judith Dupré

Hardcover, 176 pages ($26.95, Black Dog & Leventhal Publishers)

A skyscraper of a book itself, this super-tall 9”x18” volume mirrors its subjects: the world’s tallest buildings. With oversize, full-color photos, specs and a history of awe-inspiring vertical masterpieces all around the globe—including such iconic American landmarks as the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building and the Willis (formerly Sear) Tower, plus an array of newer creations in Europe, China, the Middle East and India—it’s an inspiring, eye-popping, soaring architectural tour, one that might just leave you feeling a little bit light-headed.
