David Macaulay, Illustrator

David Macaulay is a British-American illustrator who has recreated ancient worlds, looked into the future, and portrayed everything from the grand to the mundane. A MacArthur grant recipient and Caldecott medal winner, David will give us a unique look into the bones of medieval buildings.

Davi’s books are usually found in in the Children’s section of the library and, indeed, he tells his complex stories in a simple direct fashion. This PBS special provides insights into the construction of a cathedral and a fictional recreation of life in this the Medieval world.
