A is for Architecture

I have put together my first publication.  What started off as a New Years resolution to start drawing more has turned into a self published architecture children's book of sorts.  I have described it to friends as an Edward Gorey inspired architecture book.  While moving through the alphabet the reader is introduced to some basic architectural terms along with drawings that bring each term to life.  I've included both well known and lesser known buildings that I believe should be in everyone's architectural knowledge, whether or not they are in the profession.  

I think it would be a great way to introduce children to architecture and start the conversation on being aware of, and having an appreciation for, the built environment.  While I am calling this a children's book many adults are sure to find it entertaining.  The book will be available online, and hopefully in some local book stores, soon.  Check back for updates. 

Here are a few sneak peaks at some of the pages
