The Beautiful Home Architectural Prints Collection continues the Renaissance tradition of precedent, precision, invention and beauty in architectural drawing.  Michael J. Curtis, the architectural designer, was trained in copper and steel engraving by master Dennis Galffy.  Mr. Curtis is also an architectural historian and sculptor, and these disciplines add context and solidity to each architectural composition.

Mr. Curtis designed The New American Home 2011, the nation’s most prestigious house and model for America’s building industry (products, design, and technological innovation).  His other monuments, memorials, and houses are found coast to coast.

Each Beautiful Home architectural print includes diagrams, details, and descriptive paragraphs on a house style in its historical context, the style’s precedent and characteristics, and the particulars of the featured home’s design.  The succinct, memorable paragraphs are composed for adults and children so that each paragraph might prompt recollection and recognition when some house of a style is seen.

Diagrams and details are little instructions that might lend interest to a house, its style and history.  Certainly, the details make the drawings pretty, rewarding on close inspection.
