good book on architecture?

:icontoshi13go:
I'm looking for a book on architecture. I already have 'how to draw and paint Fantasy Architecture' but I'm looking for something that goes into a lot more depth about the different kinds of architecture. Are there any books you would recommend?

you can take a look at the drawings architects themselves make, "Frank Lloyd Wright Designs" is a great book or you can just google his drawings : )) there's stuff about buildings' perspective in Francis Ching's "Architectural Graphics", you can also take a look at his ink drawings and for colorful stuff - there's a chinese book with amazing marker drawings, "Architecture Color Rendings by Marker Pen", it's pretty easy to find on the net) there's yet another book i remember with colorful elevations of victorian architecture i think it was? they were really beautiful but i don't remember the author, i'll get back to you if i find out what book that was) i hope this helps you :>

the other book was a collection of Pierre Chabat's victorian houses, it's probably not much for learning how to draw archiecture but great for ideas)) good luck :D

There are many books and websites out there on real life 'fantasy' artwork, though I don't know them by name. You'd want to keep an eye out for Medieval to Victorian styles - Rococo (very whimsical/fantasy-like) Gothic, and so much more. Try searching for images of these names on the Internet + adding 'architecture' with the search.

Hopefully this helps. Good luck!
