Today we have a new P/P post, featuring two architectural-themed prints. Our older print is from 19th century architect John Plaw’s “Sketches for Houses, Villas, and Rural Houses”. The prints in this book feature country homes and their floor plan, offering a great visual contrast between the exact and meticulous lines of an architectural plan, and the unique manifestations and personality of a lived-in home. In our contemporary piece by Steven Yamin, the two blend together, with a punchy neon color palette and stark grid-lines.
