Palladio's Homes

A collection of extracts from Palladio's Four books of Architecture, with comments from those who visited them, and illustrations by Carlo Rapp. The book has a slightly unusual collation, necessary to avoid sewing through illustrations that span an opening: two 16-page sections, one 12-page section, fourteen 4-page sections and one 16-page section. In our binding of the book, the 4-page sections (i.e. two leaves each) are glued on the fold, and not sewn. The page height is 356mm, the page width is 250mm. The book is printed on a gorgeous paper by Cartiera Amatruda in Amalfi. A set of sheets is 120 plus shipping.read more about this book
