Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0967377218, Paperback)The first and most complete publication of its kind, including detailed architectural drawings and/or sketches for all twenty-one California missions. Many of these drawings have never before been published. Included in the book are new, highly detailed, digitally drafted architectural elevations and floor plans created from actual measurements of each mission. Also reproduced in this publication are archival mission drawings by architects and draftsmen of the 1930s Works Progress Administration's Historic American Buildings Survey. In addition, there are digitally enhanced rare mission sketches of the 1800s plus other mission archival drawings. The detail of the new and archival architectural drawings reproduced in this book is a tribute to the vanishing art of pen and ink drawing.
