Taschen has released a new architectural book titled The Eiffel Tower, which details the construction of the Parisian icon. With exclusive excerpts from Gustave Eiffel's own architectural journal, including drawings and photographs, the book offers a historical look at how one of the world's most recognisable structures came into being. As well, there are accompanying text to allow an even more in-depth insight into a tower that has transformed from being the world's tallest structure to a symbol of Paris and perhaps, even the world.
