From the cover: Perspectives is an intriguing and amusing collection of 1001 quotations about architecture from Classical times to the present day.

Compiled by Charles Knevitt, architecture correspondent of The Times, and delightfully illustrated by cartoonist Louis Hellman, it encompasses serious and humorous topics alike and offers a perfect drawing-board distraction to architects, builders, surveyors, planners, writers and historians anyone, in fact, seeking further insight into the Mother of the Arts.
