Doric - Matched Pair of Bookends – The First Order of Greek Architecture The bookend illustrates all the classical features of the Greek Order. Each of these features is referred to on the back wall of the bookends. This allows the observer to learn the whole language of classical architecture without effort – architecture without pain! The detail is taken directly from the Parthenon, Athens BC447/43. A solid, reliable set of matched bookends. Ionic - Matched Pair of Bookends – The Second Order of Greek Architecture This bookend is characterised by a capital composed of opposing scrolls known as volutes. This detail is taken from the Temple of Athena Nike BC425. The whole architectural language of the order is explained on the backwall of the bookends.
