Even for many of us grown-ups, bridges fascinate us just as much now as when were kids. Here Didier Cornille presents ten of the most important bridges in the world, including the Brooklyn, Golden Gate, Forth, and Sydney Harbour Bridges, as well as the Millau Viaduct and Calgary's futuristic 2012 Peace Bridge. Spanning more than 200 years of engineering history and formatted horizontally (a full 13 inches wide), this stylishly arranged guide introduces readers 9 to 12 to each engineer or architect and the main concepts of their work through charming step-by-step drawings and short texts.
