France in Ruins - Buildings in Decay


France 
in RuinsFrance in Ruins presents a spellbinding collection of evocative black-and-white pictures of ruined buildings in France: churches, town houses and castles.

The magic of ruins is unmistakeable. They have the power to appall and transfix us. No two ruins are the same and this book shows but a small sample of those that exist in France. Ruins exist to captivate us and this book reveals their history, the causes for their development and the relationship between the human condition and ruins. This book is illustrated with more than 200 photographic pictures of ruined buildings.

About the Author
