  • Bricks & Mortalsby Tom Wilkinson

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2014; US$ 21.99

    We don?t just look at buildings: their facades, beautiful or ugly, conceal the spaces where we live. We are born, work, love, and die in architecture. We buy and sell it, rent and squat it, create and destroy it. All of these aspects of buildings?economic, erotic, political, and psychological?are crucial if we are to understand architecture properly.... more...

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 37.95

    Carved for a Roman city prefect who was a newly baptized Christian at his death, the sarcophagus of Junius Bassus is not only a magnificent example of "the fine style" of mid-fourth-century sculpture but also a treasury of early Christian iconography clearly indicating the Christianization of Rome--and the Romanization of Christianity.
