A Walk into a Gothic Cathedral


A Walk into a Gothic Cathedral: German and French Cultural Heritage is more than just a coffee-table book about French and German Gothic cathedrals. Besides the more than 500 intricately detailed photos of 21 renowned cultural heritage sites, Taiwan photographer Nicholas Fan has provided a practical guide to the origins and development of European ecclesiastical architecture and its decorative style, while offering important historical context. Through the book, Fan aims to furnish Chinese readers with a clear and macroscopic historical overview of European Gothic architecture, while offering a detached perspective on a subject which at first may appear to have little connection with Chinese culture.
