Theory and Practice of Perspective

by Dover

This authoritative guide addresses one of art's most difficult challenges: the accurate re-creation of natural perspective. Discussions of theory examine the horizon, points of sight and distance, and rules of perspective.

The majority of the text examines the practice of perspective, with exercises involving:

  • Shape
  • Distance
  • Proportion
  • Shade and shadow
  • Reflection

. . . and other essentials. More than 300 illustrations and diagrams make this manual a valuable companion for students of art, architecture, and design.

Book specifications: paperback, 272 pgs., 5 3/8 in. x 8 1/2 in.
Publisher: Dover, 2006.
