It is impossible to look at an object or view the world without being aware of perspective and the sense of distance and three-dimensional solidity it gives to what we see. Understanding and using perspective allows us to create the illusion of those qualities on paper or on screen.
This book combines Robert W. Gill's two classic volumes - Basic Perspective and Creative Perspective - to provide a complete, clear and simple explanation of the principles of perspective. It demonstrates that an understanding of them - even in our technology-led world - is the key for architects and designers who want to produce great work.
Part I: One point, two point and three-point perspective with objects inclined to the ground plane (from the worm’s-eye to the bird’s-eye point of view) • Part II: Developing the basic principles into a set of valuable creative tools, using step-by-step processes.
