Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Set in the heart of London, St Paul's Cathedral is a building of immense dignity. Imposing in its scale and its baroque splendor, and with a powerful spiritual presence, it is a masterpiece of architecture. In this superbly illustrated volume, the work of architect Sir Christopher Wren and his team of builders and craftsmen is charted in fascinating detail, as are the contributions of later artists and restorers. 200 color photos capture the character and the beauty of the cathedral--its architecture, the exquisite detail of its decoration, and its opulent accumulation of artwork and monuments. We are also offered a glimpse of the momentous events that have taken place in St Paul's--royal marriages, state funerals, and celebrations of great lives and deeds. This is a splendid history of one of England's best-loved treasures.
