New Book By Michael James Plautz, Co-founder of RSP Architects, is Released

A friend just published a book which is a great resource for drawing, watercolor and architecture. Draw, Quotidien Lines, a gorgeous coffee table book showcases the best of Michael J. Plautz's drawings, paintings and screen prints. Take a look! 
DRAW: QUOTIDIAN LINES (Octane Press, Nov. 2011, $40)
The joy of drawing, travel and life permeate the art of Michael J. Plautz. A carefully chosen selection from a lifetime of work is presented in Draw, a lush coffee table book containing drawings, paintings, sketches, poems, and essays created by an architect, teacher and dedicated student of the world.

Michael was one of the founders of RSP Architects, and his eye for architecture is readily visible in drawings, paintings and screen prints of architectural masterpieces from Rome and Patmos as well as images of Italian hill towns, Montana trout streams, and the rugged farmland of his childhood home in northern Wisconsin.

Draw is accompanied by Michael's poetic essays about the artistic influences on his life, ranging from his mother and childhood friends to encounters with masters of light and space. Draw: Quotidian Lines is a handcrafted 230-page book printed on matte-finished 140gsm paper with five hand-bound gatefolds. This high-quality piece resonates with the author's love of life, art and architecture.
