Bridges of the World

Available

Description

Fifty bridges from all over the world to be crossed on foot or with one's imagination.

Throughout history bridges have been used as a way to link people, places and cultures. Whether a natural arch or a man-made feat of engineering, bridges can be both beautiful and functional, each in a unique relationship with the land around it. And the stories that accompany these bridges are just as fascinating: the legends, anecdotes and the inspirational lives of those who designed, built and crossed them.

This book celebrates some of the world's best bridges of all description: great icons such as the Tower Bridge in London, the Charles Bridge in Prague and the Golden Gate in San Francisco; a precarious thread stretched between the Twin Towers by an acrobat; treasures destroyed and rebuilt, like the Mostar Bridge in Herzegovina; and a streak of frozen snow between the crevasses of a glacier.
