Description

From the book: “Although Verbonia is imaginary, its planning and construction are based on those of the hundreds of Roman cities founded between 300 B.C. and A.D. 150.”

This incredible book takes the reader through the planning stages to the actual construction of Verbonia, using both words and detailed black-and-white drawings. The Roman city grid system is used widely throughout the world today, and many of the tools and techniques have not changed over these many hundreds of years.
