That's not weird, that's cool!

Something I ran across over at the Weird Earl's feature on The Straight Dope, a link to a spot called Urville, a collection of wonderfully detailed architectural drawings by a young French man by the name of Gilles Trehin. M. Trehin states that he has been diagnosed with autism (or with Asperger's syndrome), and has over the years developed a highly detailed, and entirely fictional, place he calls Urville, complete with a description of its geography, people, economy, and as mentioned, its architecture.

It's kind of like running your own Sims game, except completely--and with exceeding talent--hand-drawn.
