"This volume reveals how architects approach drawing as a process wherein ideas are given form. As a tool for teaching, these examples become important in students' understanding of the formal and technical aspects of design thought. In an age of digital technologies, this work emphasizes the intimate relationship that exists between the drawing and its maker, the process between paper, hand, and mind."
-LaRaine Papa Montgomery, Professor of Architecture/Graphics Coordinator, Savannah College of Art and Design
"A wonderful resource on design visualization and graphic communication that covers all aspects of drawing conventions and manual techniques of representation. Richly illustrated and professionally presented in a way that makes it accessible to beginners as well as advanced students, this book stands out as a core reference for courses on design graphics."
-Dr. Samer Akkach, Senior Lecturer in Architecture and DesignThe University of Adelaide, South Australia
"This book contains an abundance of some of the most inventive graphic presentations by world-class architects. As I browse through this book, the hundreds of pages of thought provoking images both relax and excite me, an experience that only a good read can bring. It illuminates the process of visual thinking behind some of the most creative minds. As the profession is becoming more and more constrained by economics and time, this book reminds us of how ideas in architecture began."
-William W. P. Chan, AIA, Assistant Professor of Architecture, Morgan State University, Institute of Architecture and Planning

This book is an amazing reference material. It contains a lot of diagrams and the amount of words that accompany them aren't overwhelming. The first couple of pages outlines various tools used in architecture. Overall, it is a very progressive book in that it teaches the basics and gradually extends into more detail. I would basically reinvest in this book if I lost it.
