New York's Empire State Building. The London Eye. The Eiffel Tower in Paris. Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock. These towering edifices are just four of the iconic man-made structures "profiled" in this wonderful little book, a collection of fifty illustrated urban skylines from around the world. But rather than a photographically accurate skyline, each two-page illustration strips away the traffic, smog, and scaffolding to present a composite of the city's significant structures, from the ancient (Lhasa's Buddhist Pabonka Monastery) to the cutting edge (Dubai's Burj Khalifa skyscraper). Accompanied by brief yet insightful descriptions of each town's history and architecture, Skylines goes beyond the usual suspects of New York, Paris, and Rome to guide armchair travelers through the wonders of Havana, Marrakech, Mecca, Minsk, and more!
