Book review- Staircases: The Architecture of Ascent!

I have received another book named, "Staircases: The Architecture of Ascent" from The Vendome Press lately. This big and beautifully illustrated book, authored by Oscar Tusquets Blanca, Martine Diot, Adelaïde de Savray, Jérôme Coignard, Jean Dethier is a great addition to my collection of coffee table books!

Inside this book, you will be introduced to the different types of staircases and the astonishing diversity of staircases, from the stepped pyramids of the Maya to the exquisitely proportioned stairs of the Renaissance, to the elaborate balustrades of the Baroque period.

Here is a sneak peek!

This volume not only showcases a diverse range of dazzling staircases over the centuries but also the magnificent architecture that surrounds them. Filled with awe-inspiring images and interesting historical facts, this book is highly recommended for those who are interested in architecture, interiors, design or history. 

You can pick up your copy here.

*I received this book to review for free but the views and opinions expressed are entirely my own.
