Getty Tomb Postcard--Build Your Own Chicago
Louis Sullivan designed this mausoleum for the Henry Harrison Getty family in 1890. The dramatic symmetry of the arches and delicate ornament define much of Sullivan's later architecture. This card includes all pieces and instructions necessary to make a complete paper model at 1:150 scale, approx. 2" wide. All the cards in the Build Your Own Chicago series are mailable postcards, with space on the reverse for a stamp and address and a message. Each card also includes a short but informative description of the landmark the model represents. Instructions are included in the form of multi-lingual isometric diagrams. There is also a Build Your Own New York series.
