Alfabeto Pittorico: A curious alphabet of splendid architecture

Antonio Basoli was an celebrated Italian artist who lived in the 18th and 19th centuries, working mostly in Bologna. He is known for these beautiful architectural alphabet engravings called Alfabeto Pittorico. I love the ornate architecture and romanticism of these pieces and the sense of depth in these pieces. What do you think?
