    Mausolea and memorials, columns (but only those with stairs to the top), clock towers and water towers, belvederes, a faux Norman ruin and even a pagoda (in Kew Gardens) ... As diverse and diverting as the buildings themselves, Peter Ashley's book is a personal selection of 60 towers ranging from 18th century follies to a 21st century mobile phone mast. For each tower, Ashley's full-page photograph is accompanied by his witty and irreverent commentary on its history and architectural presence.
