Where to buy

The rich and varied architectural heritage of centuries, now irrevocably diminished, is preserved in this evocative photographic collection—drawn from many archives throughout Europe—of buildings that have been lost to warfare, ideology or “progress.” The historic images, introduced by an expert from each of eight countries, convey the unique character of each national manmade landscape. Lost Europe will be treasured by historians and travel and photography enthusiasts.
