I bought this book on the recommendation of James Gurney, whose own "Color and Light" has been immensely helpful for my understanding and control of both those subjects in my artwork. He described this book as being the one-stop source for everything anybody needs to know about drawing in perspective and he wasn't kidding! I've developed some rudimentary knowledge of perspective drawing over the years, but this book was teaching me things I never knew since page one. Along with Gurney's Color and Light and Faigin's The Artist's Complete Guide to Facial Expressions, this book should be required reading for every student of visual art.
