Peacay of the always-great BibliOdyssey recently posted an amazing set of scanned mid-sixteenth-century engravings called "Architecture of Fantasy I" (I hope that means there will be a part II and III?) all done by Hans Vredeman de Vries. I particularly love the imaginative caryatids.
Okay, I admit I have added these to the ever growing PDF coloring book of weird old stuff I'm making for the kid. That's probably really annoying. Oh well.
