ABOUT THIS BOOK
Over the last sixty years, Technical Drawing has taught well over a million students the practices and techniques of graphical communication. Both instructors and their students have come to depend on this text as the authority on the subject, and most students have used this book as a professional reference long after they have finished taking this course. Why has this book been so successful? First, the main goal of the text has always been to explain each principle so clearly that the student is certain to understand it, and to make the text interesting enough to encourage all students to read and study on their own. Second, this book has also had what are unquestionably the best, most detailed, and accurate set of drawings on the market. A student skilled with this book's drawings will have a full repertoire of graphical skills in his or her hands. Lastly, Technical Drawing continually has sought to address the new technologies and the skills that constantly change this field. By doing so, this text prepares students to enter the marketplace and face the challenges of a rapidly changing playing field. THE TWELFTH EDITION
The Twelfth Edition of Technical Drawing continues to offer the best coverage of basic graphics principles available. Edition after edition, this text serves as the authoritative source on the subject. With this new version, we have acted upon the requests of over 10 reviewers and 75 survey respondents to improve certain aspects of the book while preserving its core presentation.
