Villard de Honnecourt: A Critical Bibliography

by Carl F. Barnes, Jr. to 2012 and continued by George Brooks


Nearly all the literature published on Villard before the early 1980s, and even much that has appeared since then, either ignores the egregious blunders of his drawings or seeks to explain them away by special pleading of various kinds, evidently from a sentimental attachment to the notion that Villard was a practicing architect.

This work-in-progress is a large project and must be broken into sections to be useful.
