booksnbuildings:

A Gothic pillar and entabulature.
In this early treatise and design-book on Gothic architecture - dating from already 1742, when classicism was still very firmly rooted in Western architecture - Gothic architecture is treated not as a living, highly artisan form of architecture, but just like classicism as a formalised and theoretically thought-through way of building. The effect is endearing and rather strange.
You can read the whole book and see the other strange plates here.
