A sturdy introduction to perspective projection
This book introduces artists to perspective projection, using one-, two-, and three-point projection examples. It covers much of the material covered by books that cost five or six times as much as this, so it has amazing value. It also will inspire works, no matter how you'd like to use projection in your art.
The complaint I have about this book, and the many other like it in this respect, is that it lacks any formality. In this reviewer's opinion, teaching certain aspects of perspective without formal justification amounts to heresy. Any inquisitive mind will be left wondering "Well, why do measuring points work that way?" or "How will moving the picture plane, station point, or vanishing points affect the drawing?" Unfortunately for the curious or formal-minded, they will have to seek answers to such questions elsewhere.
