Working on the drawings; got all the drawings in the attic down and sorted & picked out those I want to finish. Alas, that I have not taken better care of them—and alas too, that I did not use better paper. So many of the early 1920s are on wallpaper stock, which has grown yellow, and brittle in some cases. I plan to stretch strong detail paper and mound the drawings on that as a perspective.
