Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Leblanc, who has taught perspective at French universities for nearly 20 years, explains principles precisely and clearly and includes enough geometry to fully illuminate concepts without straying too far into math class territory. While all the perspective basics are covered, the principles are also applied to drawing subjects, like human figures and interior views, beyond those commonly associated with perspective. The sketches included by the author and his students liven up the lessons. This new book on the familiar technique of perspective drawing presents well-worn material in a fresh way.
Library Journal
Leblanc presents perspective drawing in a fresh way by using geometry, detailing concepts thoroughly, and applying the technique to a wide range of subjects. Best for intermediate- and advanced-level readers.
