I would recommend this book as an ideal choice for any design student who might be struggling to get their ideas down onto paper or is just simply curious to learn more about the history of drawing.
The author highlights some less conventional representational techniques and is informative as well as an excellent inspirational tool.
A range of techniques are included - sketch, survey, diagram, perspective, model making (both physical and digital) and animation as well as ideas for how to portray light, colour, texture and portfolio layout. The book is also full of inspirational images of work from a range of designers.
Rather than being an exhaustive set of descriptions of how to draw, the author focuses on the effects of different types of drawings and how the process of drawing can also help to clarify design ideas.
Even a flick through this book will encourage any student to think more creatively about their portfolio!
