Unusual and beautiful engravings of surreal interiors, plazas and architectural features much beloved of filmmakers, set designers and artists seeking atmospheric landscapes and situations. Fabulous and strange views.
From spiral stairways to piazzas, archways and elevations to rooms with distant vanishing points, these prints are designed to demonstrate with incidental construction lines, the principles of perspective in architectural drawings. The vistas remain clear and the atmospheres and ornamentation of the buildings and scenes are haunting and beautiful.
