The Gothic cathedral is one specific distinct of humanity's greatest masterpieces--an architectural feast that couldn't support but attract the attention of renowned author-illustrator David Macaulay. (Ages 9 and older) --Gail Hudson How were those 60-foot-high windows made and installed in the 13th century? He begins Cathedral in 1252, when the people of a fictitious French town named Chutreaux decide to build a cathedral instantly after their current church is struck by lightning. Week by week we witness the construction of this glorious temple to God. Thanks to Macaulay's thorough, thoughtful tribute for the Gothic cathedral, not a stone, turret, or pane of stained glass is left unexamined or unexplained. When an architectural student at the Rhode Island School of Design, Macaulay glories within the intricacies and beauty of structure, as evidenced in his masterful pen-and-ink drawings in critically acclaimed children's books like Castle, Pyramid, and Rome Antics. We first meet the craftspeople, then examine the tools, study their cathedral plans, and watch the laying in the foundation. And how did folks haul those huge, heavy bells up in to the skyscraper-high towers? Macaulay intuitively hones in on the specifics about which we are the most curious: How had been those enormously high ceilings built and decorated?
