Many building prints are created from blueprint art. These works serve to either illustrate the building process or to educate the viewer concerning elements of the larger structure. These blueprint images are generally sketch-like, as seen in the urban development print, 'Golden Gate' by Avery Tillman, although some of them are actually photographs of specific design elements, as seen in the architecture plan photograph, 'Architectural Detail IV' by Boyce Watt.
Blueprint art doesn't only show buildings or cities however. Images of ship blueprint art, like 'Titanic Deck Plan' also offer valuable historic insight into these structures. Additionally, blueprints of other man-made designs are available to modern art audiences, such as the blueprint image, 'Small Garden Maze III (P)' by J. F. Blondel.
