Key, small, elements of architecture are defined: Ionic, Doric, and Corinthian capitals and the dome. This short, sweet learn node was placed online in 2005 by the St. Louis Public Library.The elements are illustrated with drawings from the library’s Steedman Architectual Collection of great published works on architecture and the allied arts.

A speck of erudition beckons learners:
This small art online node is a mere speck in the grand scheme of the internet. Yet the node can add knowledge and excellence to many, many patterns of other links. This is an ideal use in creating learning materials of the network nature of the internet. Great drawings are lifted from books published in a time of excellence of architectural rendering. Basic facts about classical column capitals and the dome are described with the illustrations. The material set loose as a URL in the open internet. A young student, an erudite professor, a working architect, a classical scholar – they all, and more, can benefit from this speck of knowledge.
