    Description
    During the Middle Ages, a series of remarkable Gothic cathedrals rose in Paris and across northern France. Easily accessible from Paris, these great monuments represent the pinnacle of medieval architecture. Beautifully illustrated with 173 colour plates and photographs, 'Great Gothic Cathedrals Of France' is an introduction to Gothic architecture and a personal tour of each cathedral that gives the reader and visitor a vivid and practical approach to appreciating these great buildings.

    Stan Parry shows the inquisitive traveller how the great cathedrals were built, where we might sit or stand while contemplating various aspects of the interior, how to relate the exterior with flying buttresses to the interior structure, and how to recognise the incredible ingenuity and experimentation that caused Gothic architecture to sweep across northern Europe during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.
