Rome
''The ancient city of Rome is the perfect subject for Stephen Biesty''s illustrations - beautifully constructed, technologically advanced, and teeming with life. Titus''s Roman Holiday takes in the Temple, the Forum and the Baths, the Colosseum and chariot racing at the Circus Maximus, all illustrated in stunning, painstaking detail. There are cross-sections, cut-aways and explosions, authoritative annotations, lists and explanations. Biesty captures the epic scale of the city - the capacitycrowd at the Colosseum, for example - and there is some wonderful attention to detail in the architecture and the engineering. But he also succeeds in capturing the humanity of the city and has a great eye for the quirky minutiae of daily life A well-researched reference work with a sizeable glossary and index, Rome is a witty and brilliantly illustrated book, pitched at the 9-12 year old, but destined to bring the ancient city to life for a wide range of readers.''
