Focused on Gothic buildings within the Paris Basin, but with occasional excursions, The Creation of Gothic Architecture aims to provide an overall chronology through the study of every available example of the various architectural elements, primarily using photographs, with commentaries, and supported by documents where they exist.
Studying the evolution of foliate capitals, Volumes 4 and 5 survey formal capitals of 1130-1170: the work of carvers who 'stepped into a world of creativity for which there was no historic precedent'. No jacket.
