A new book celebrates the design and engineering of the world’s bridges. Author Judith Dupre reveals her favorites from the past 20 years.
Judith Dupre loves bridges so much that she became an expert on them 20 years ago. At the time, she wrote and published Bridges to document and celebrate the happiest of constructions–the very structure that enables people to connect effortlessly across gorges, rivers, and even seas. Now, a new 20th-anniversary edition updates her old compendium with full color printing plus new photographs and diagrams, and a new oversized format. It’s a beautiful book and she has selected her seven favorite bridges for us.
