Villard BIBLIOGRAPHY to 2014

Villard de Honnecourt: A Critical Bibliography to 2014

As developed over a lifetime by Carl F. Barnes, Jr.

“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.”

—Christopher Wilson
