SKYLINES OF THE WORLD
Yesterday and Today

By M. Hill Goodspeed

cover image In 2005, Levin Associates' book, Skylines: American Cities Yesterday and Today, celebrated the mighty American skyline, featuring 48 spectacular American cities and their history. Now, leaping back in time while stretching to the farthest corners of the globe, Skylines of the World: Yesterday and Today features 49 cities from around the world, including 8 cities from the United States.

From the sentinels of ancient Jerusalem, Athens and Rome, to the medieval steeples of Munich and Budapest, to the magnificence of Renaissance Florence and Venice, this book vaults through the pages of European history and beyond.

And as these cities feed the culture and civilization of their respective countries, so too do their rivers, seas, and oceans upon which their early inhabitants settled. From London to Paris to Stockholm, Oslo, and Bergen and across the globe to Sydney, Perth, Hong Kong and Singapore, the lights of today's cities glisten in the reflection of their life-giving waters. Across the oceans, within the borders of North America, cities built on the classical designs of European architecture butt up against modern glass and steel beacons that point resolutely towards the future.

This incomparable volume sparkles with the spectacular panoramic photographs of Blakeway Worldwide Panoramas by James Blakeway and Chris Gjevre, both of whom have traveled the globe in search of the perfect view, the perfect light, and the perfect skyline.
