    Learn all about the inner-workings of buildings and machines with the extraordinary cross-section illustrations in this non-fiction book.

    Featuring Stephen Biesty's eye-catchingly detailed artwork, this hardback contains cross-section imagery of submarines, skyscrapers, Spanish galleons and so much more. Its concise and authoritative text reveals how all of these buildings and inventions work.

    Why was the chapel the highest room in the castle? Why did castle stairs spiral clockwise as they rose? This book from Stephen Biesty answers these questions and more. It offers a Where's Wally?-style approach to learning about historical castles from the 14th century.

    The artwork slices through different areas of a medieval fortress, offering extraordinary cross-section views of the people inside and their roles - from servants to knights preparing for battle! A favourite for over 25 years, this book also contains gatefold pages to fold out and explore in detail.

    From drawbridges and dungeons to jousters and troubadours, there are so many things to spot in this brilliant book. You can also have fun trying to find the spy - could he be in the well, the keep or the moat?
