This week, let's look at books by master illustrator David Macaulay . Macaulay is best known for books that explain complex things—like buildings and bridges and bodies—in a simple, visual way.
Macaulay was born in England, but spent some of his teenage years in the United States, where he went to college. He trained as an architect, but never worked as one, instead trying his hand at interior design and teaching. His first book was Cathedral , followed by City: A Story of Roman Planning  and Construction , and Pyramid . He writes stories, too, such as Baaa  (my personal favorite as a barnyard fellow), which tells how human beings vanished from the earth and are replaced by sheep who make the same mistakes.
Macaulay has said that the world would be a better place if everyone drew pictures because it would help them to learn to see things, and how things work, more clearly. Will one of these books change how you see the world?
