Awesome apartment, awesome blueprint!

This is the apartment of Mary Richards (Mary Tyler Moore) and if you don't remember the show, just move along.

Mary had the coolest apartment on TV. And while I was loving it as a preteen, Mark Bennett was sketching blueprints of her domain while also drawing the home of Jodi and Buffy, the Jetson's home and the entire town of Mayberry. That's just to name a few.

So here's Mary's page:

I spent a lot of time examining Mary's apartment; I don't have an architect's mind but still. The whole book, TV Sets: Fantasy Blueprints of Classic TV Homes by Mark Bennett is a worthy buy. Click the pic below to go to Amazon where you can buy a new or used copy.
