Why We Love This

When it was completed in 1889, the Eiffel Tower was the highest structure in the world, measuring 984 feet. Built for the World's Fair, it was initially granted a 20-year permit; this permit was thankfully extended and now the Eiffel Tower is one of the world's most famous structures, having become practically synonymous with Paris itself and receiving more than 6 million visitors annually. This reprint explores the design and construction of the building; published in 1900 as a large folio by Gustave Eiffel himself in a limited edition of 500 copies, the original was exclusively given and donated by Eiffel. Featuring 53 double-page plates of 4,300 technical drawings explaining the design as well as 33 photographs of the construction, the book reveals the complex and fascinating process of bringing the Eiffel Tower to life.
