gun control (in a sense)

we're about to start working on a group (nine total) of these great blueprints and bluelines, plus one photostat (this one is a negative, particularly beautiful in its coloring with age, including a moderate amount of mirroring), that were drawn up for the manufacture of several types of handguns. none of you are likely to know how much i love pretty guns or shooting them, so i'll just tell you i'm fascinated with this set of reproductions. these working "drawings" are so amazing...we love it when clients bring in things like this. they are quite large and have been folded, rolled, and unrolled many times- so most of the damage is along fold lines and edges. we'll be doing a lot of mending and flattening, and they'll be housed in large polyester sleeves.
