It is impossible to look at an object or view without being aware of the existence of perspective, which gives a sense of distance and three-dimensional solidity to what is seen. It is equally impossible for the architectural draughtsman to work without a sound knowledge of the principles that govern perspective drawing. It is those principles that this book explains, so clearly and in such a logical progeression of steps that it really merits the adjective 'basic'. Starting with an explanation (illustrated) of the technical terms, the author goes on to explain one-point and two-point perspective drawing, and three-point perspective with objects inclined to the ground plane (bird's-eye and worm's-eye views). Any architectural student who follows the author's lucid, expert guidance throughout will acquire the draughtsmanship and understanding that he needs. More Information
