I'm sooo excited, I bought this book yesterday, it's quite expensive and there are three more I need to buy one day (they are also not cheap - about 70$), but it's worth it.
This book called "European Furniture. Measured Drawings", originally they were published in 1940-50s in USSR and now reprinted. The main thing I'm happy about is that the authors used metric system ( to be honest, I still can't get used to inches, especially when I use projects from woodworking mags).
Anyway, the drawings are perfect - there are almost all periods you need - from viking's furniture :))) to art nouveau and 1970s furniture. There's an album with art nouveau drawings, I want it really bad, but decided against buying it for now, besides I've found four nouveau projects in my book.
I hope I'll start working on some new pieces from this book very soon.
