This text by Joseph D'Amelio serves as a great introduction into perspective for artists wanting to get their feet wet in a land of vanishing points. I particularly appreciated the unusual level of rigor and information in this text; most introductory books in this price point do little more than give formulaic recipes for constructing images without justification or formality. This book gives lots of inspiring, if relatively simplistic, images, but it also provides an appreciable amount of justification for the theory. Buy it for the introduction, keep it for the valuable reference.
Great material but i am not happy with this purchase. I bought this book as a text book for a class and all of the page numbers are different for the e book then the text book. This makes it incredibly difficult for me to complete the assigned pages that I am required to read. I will not be buying from you ever again because I do not read books and only read text books for school. You have lost a customer that could have been a very loyal customer.
