Bridges

Bridges

From New York Times best-selling author Judith Dupré comes a revised and updated edition of Bridges, her magnificent chronological tour of the world’s most significant and eye-popping spans. Covering thousands of years of architectural history, each bridge is gorgeously photographed “elevating the landmarks from mode of transportation to works of art” (Bustle).

Technological advances, structural daring, and artistic vision have propelled the evolution of bridge design around the world. This visual history of the world’s landmark bridges has been thoroughly revised and updated since its initial publication twenty-five years ago, and now showcases well-known classics as well as modern innovators. Bridges featured include:
  • The Brooklyn Bridge (New York)
  • Danyand-Kunshan Grand Bridge (China)
  • Gateshead Millennium Bridge (England)
  • The Golden Gate Bridge (San Francisco)
  • Zakim Bridge (Boston)
Including all-new photographs and the latest cutting edge work from today’s international superstars of architecture and engineering, Bridges covers two-thousand years of technological and aesthetic triumphs, making it the most thorough, authoritative, and gorgeous book on the subject-as dramatic in presentation as the structures it celebrates. Breathtaking photographs capture the bridges’ details as well as their monumental scale; architectural drawings and plans invite you behind the scenes as new bridges take shape; and lively commentary on each structure explores its importance and places it in historical context. Throughout, informative profiles, features, and statistics make Bridges an invaluable reference as well as a visual feast.

A digital short story from The Dead House author Dawn Kurtagich

There is a box.
A box that should never have been discovered.

This was for Kaitlyn. It was a mistake.
Forget this box and leave the Isle.
Don’t look any further.

I’m begging you.

The chilling, psychological horror of The Dead House returns with never-before-seen footage of the Naida tapes.
