I recall seeing an original once, and they are around 36″ wide, which was actually shockingly small to me. The one I saw was also mixed media, with pen, ink washes and paint all used together.

    This was published in 1981, so presumably is not computer-rendered.

    Some other views from this same book (other than straight elevations) are even prettier
