About the Author
Praise For Bay Bridge: History and Design of a New Icon…
"A must-have for any design, architecture, or Bay Area enthusiast.... MacDonald's reproductions of area maps, Ohlone Indian reed huts, the San Francisco ferry terminal, beloved architectural details of local buildings, comparisons of different bridge styles, and so on are worthy of hours of artist/geeky contemplation.... A great addition to a gift basket for out-of-town guests, it's a gorgeous celebration from the mind of the visionary who guided his plan from fantasy to reality." - Front Door / HGTV.com
"Author and illustrator Donald MacDonald evokes all the mythic splendor and danger of the "Titan of Bridges" in his book, Bay Bridge: History and Design of a New Icon. As the architect of the new eastern span of the bridge, MacDonald brings intimate knowledge of the technical, political, and geological hurdles involved in its construction." - ForeWord Reviews
