Architecture Alphabet

I
recently discovered the work of Johann David Steingruber. This collection of architecture designed around the letters of the alphabet. I happened see them in the Ballard Design catalog. It peaked my interest. So thanks to the wonders of the Internet I was able to read up on these designs. They were publish in 1773! You have to agree they are interesting an unique even for being 238 years old. No letter "J". I wonder why? His own name started with "J". You would think that would have been the first one he did. NEWS FLASH. I found prints available at a price even I can afford. SEE HERE

I fell in love with these too! But there is no J! What am I supposed to do about that?
