Richard, I am happy that the Russians can make fine drawings into an art form, and if I knew that they were not the actual building plan originals, I would buy them too.

I have seen many beautiful linen drawings of older buildings and greatly admire the painstaking artistry of those of years ago who often drew all the ornament that was to appear in or on a building. In a way it is sad that modern methods such as CAD do not allow much for such creations, and we are all the poorer for it. Will those of the future consider our mylar inkings, or plotter printouts to be as desireable?
