No mere colorization of the black-and-white originals of the first two books [Castle and Cathedral](thank goodness!), the all-new, often breathtaking images have been drawn by hand and then digitally colored to harmonize, beautifully, with the look of Mosque.--Kirkus, starred review

Hold onto your old copies; but add this new version, too. All have much to offer, and comparison is fascinating: illustration, bookmaking, and communication continue to evolve.--The Horn Book, starred review
Though most libraries won't want to discard their copies of Cathedral and Castle, the new color artwork and updated content give this three-books-in-one volume high value and strong appeal.--School Library Journal, starred review

Praise for The Way We Work

To his many fans, David Macaulay is nothing less than America's Explainer-in-Chief--The Providence Journal

Humor thus occasionally leavens the information, which, though often complex and technical, is clearly and succinctly presented in double-page spreads, accompanied by an illuminating array of illustrations (including diagrams and cross-sections), often full of visual metaphors and striking angles. Nonfiction (reference books, in particular) rarely seems to get the respect it deserves, but Macaulay's latest ambitious, encyclopedic work commands it.--The Horn Book, starred review

. . . the accuracy, detail and depth of information make this an essential addition to most collections.--Kirkus Reviews

The wonder that is David Macaulay is at it again....The work of this Caldecott medal winner and recipient of the McArthur grant is always a must-have in any library.--VOYA (5Q4P), highlighted review

Praise for Mosque

Macaulay offers an unusual, inspiring perspective into Islamic society that's removed from the charged headlines, and as in all his work, he conveys a contagious awe and wonder at the design and engineering feats that societies have accomplished. --Booklist, starred review
