Mann writes with clarity about the technical aspects... and with verve about the building's inspiring effect on New Yorkers.  
  
 
  
About the Author 
  
Elizabeth Mann has written nine Wonder of the World books, an award-winning series cited by Booklist as one of the ten best nonfiction series for young readers.  
  
 
  
Alan Witschonke graduated from Rhode Island School of Design. He was the illustrator of two previous Wonders of the World books, Hoover Dam and The Brooklyn Bridge.  
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
The illustrated true story of the world's most famous skyscraper.  
  
 
  
In 1929 the race was on to construct the tallest building in the world. Less than two years later, the race was won and the age of skyscrapers had its exclamation point.  
  
 
  
In Empire State Building, author Elizabeth Mann tells the story of an American icon. From start to finishing touches, she tracks the wonders of architecture, engineering, and construction that went into its creation. Her fascinating profiles of the millionaires and laborers capture the essence of the individuals who dreamed of and built this architectural marvel.  
  
 
  
Alan Witschonke's paintings are bold and luminous, and his diagrams dazzlingly clear. Photographs by early 20th century master Lewis Hine take the reader up high into the heady, dangerous world of the steelworker out on the edge of girders way above the city streets. Empire State Building is a timely book about the enduring achievement of a great city.
