Most architecture books available today are written by non-Catholics and may contain biases against the Church. Though I've screened out a number of problematic books and skimmed all of these recommended books for problems, I was unable to verify every word of every book - particularly the large coffee table books - which are of interest primarily for th eir beautiful pictures and basic dates and other facts. Please supervise your children in their studies and double-check any facts that don't sound right.
An asterisk (*) indicates a resource that our family especially loves. A cross (+) designates Catholic sources. A few of the books are out of print or too expensive for most families to own, but I've included our favorites among these anyway, because you might be able to find them at your library or through a used book source.
