Quest for the Lost City of Gold
Since becoming a full-time illustrator in 1985, Stephen Biesty has worked on a variety of information books for both adults and children. His first book for DK, the best-selling Stephen Biesty's Incredible Cross-Sections, was published in 1992. That volume was the inspiration for a successful range of cross-section books including Man-of-War, Castle, Incredible Explosions, and Incredible Everything. Using just paper, pen and ink, and watercolor paints, Stephen Biesty never uses a ruler, drawing everything freehand.
QUEST FOR THE LOST CITY OF GOLD is not only an enjoyable shared adventure, complete with fascinating facts about history and architecture, but the book itself is a stunning work of art, inviting many hours of enjoyable browsing. Who can resist this call to adventure?
