The Golden Gate Bridge is the most famous bridge in the world. It is also, not entirely coincidentally, the worldâs first bright-orange bridge. But it wasnât supposed to be that way.
In this book, fellow bridge-lovers Dave Eggers and Tucker Nichols tell the story of how it happenedÂhow a bridge that some people wanted to be red and white, and some people wanted to be yellow and black, and most people wanted simply to be gray, instead became, thanks to the vision and stick-to-itiveness of a few peculiar architects, one of the most memorable man-made objects ever created.
Told with playful paper cut-outs and irresistible prose, This Bridge Will Not Be Gray is a joyful history lesson in picture-book formÂa gorgeously crafted story that teaches us how beauty and inspiration tend to come from the most unexpected places. Sometimes you have to fight for what you believe in, even if itâs just a color.
