Details & Care

An enlightening volume provides the first complete history of Alcatraz told through its architecture. In friendly illustrations and accessible text, authors Donald MacDonald and Ira Nadel reveal the design decisions that have shaped the island from its first brick-and-masonry fortress to the infamous concrete cellblock, to the landscape design of its contemporary gardens and bird sanctuaries. In a lovely cloth-bound package, this is an eminently giftable book and an entertaining look at one of the nation’s most visited destinations.
