The Paley Studios Archive has catalogued 19 menorah drawings for the seven Menorahs Albert has created.  Several Menorahs were designed as one of a kind commissions for specific congregations while others were created as Decorative arts series. 
The Paley Studios Archie has catalogued more than 1400 drawings created by Albert Paley over a 50+ year span. 
“The Drawings enable me to experience and completely understand form before going into metal and to explain the form to somebody else.  After that communication is understood, I go into the studio.” 
~Albert Paley
