Lists with This Book. Mar 21, Jim rated it really liked it Shelves: Originally published inthis Dover Book reprint has faithfully reproduced the original illustrations and the text is clear and easy to read.
As a technique book, Norling covers each topic in simple steps with clear illustrations of each idea. If you’re a beginner, this book will be very helpful, especially if you don’t have a teacher and are trying to learn on your own.
I picked up this book to help me prepare lesson plans for next fall, and I was pleasantly surprised at the range of topics Norling covers, some of which I’d never considered before, and some which I haven’t thought of since I was an art student back in the dark ages. Overall, a pleasant surprise and a useful resource for artists, teachers, and students. Jan 22, Jessica Courter rated it it was amazing Shelves: The title is not deceiving!
This will teach you all the essentials about perspective in a easy to read and fully illustrated manner. Well worth my time. I borrowed this from a friend, but if I ever start perspectivd more frequently, I might add this to my shelf as a quick reference book. Jan 28, Mde rated it it was ok Shelves: I have erneet reading a lot of books on the subject of perspective drawing recently and this book is one that is highly recommended by a lot of artists.
I’m not quite sure why though because when comparing it to the other books I have read, I find it incredibly lacking.

It goes about explaining things in round about ways with chunks of information here and there that would make perspevtive difficult for someone with no prior knowledge of 1, 2 and 3 point perspective to ever fully figure out the proper setup and construction of things.
I wouldn’t recommend this at all to anyone. There were basically 2 pieces of information in this book that I enjoyed and that have not been covered in the other books I have read. The first was about dividing the circle pg and how it can be used to divide up sections on an umbrella, a plate, a cup, a lamp shade etc.
The second was on pgexplaining perspetcive there can perapective multiple sets of vanishing points for objects in a room rotated at different angles. It’s great persepctive this book is going to be reprinted again, since its first publication in It’s a very useful book. All the concepts of perspective are explained in plain and simple English. It teaches the basic foundation well, in a progressive manner where you build onto what you’ve learned earlier. Included are examples that emphasis the lesson point effectively.
Once you get it, you get it forever. Sep 07, Mischa rated it really liked it Shelves: Perapective book is great for quickly getting a grasp on the concept of perspective in drawing. As it’s an old book, the PDF is available online for free and you perspectivve work ernestt it in a day or two.
Just read this and then get back to Robertson’s holy book. Aug 30, Nicholas Ball rated it it was amazing Shelves: Simply written, natural progression in topics and exercises, a fully ernesh, cheap, one-step shop for anyone interested in trying to get their head around perspective in construction and art.
Mar 15, Ancestra rated it liked it Shelves: Well-written explanations so far, highly recommended for beginners in perspective. But, Norlimg would more recommend to watch a video if you want to study perspective or other “how to draw” things, since it more easy to understand.
There’s a lot of it. Perspective is one of aesy most essential skills that every artist should master.

Really clear, simple explanations, with easy to follow diagrams. Apr 18, Gabriele Cuscino rated it really liked it. Even though the introduction to the subject is a little bit too long and redundant, despite the will to introduce the user to the lexicon and frame of mind, the book is incredibly good. This is the version revised in the and republished in thebut nonetheless certain things never changes and if someone is good at teaching you those things, their ways are always the best.
I’ve found a lot of example very useful and the visuals here are veru good. A single illustration can drive you in t Even though the introduction to the subject is a little bit too long and redundant, despite the will to introduce the user to the lexicon and frame of mind, the book is incredibly good. A single illustration can drive you in the right way and this is what I wanted. Honestly, I’ve scanned some pages and pinned them on my wall while exercising – yes, they are that good.
For the price, it’s utterly good and I recommend it. Oct 05, Yi rated it it was amazing Shelves: Great reference book on perspective – easy to understand explanations with plenty of illustrations.
Not surprised how complex perspective can be. This is one definitive go-to book on the subject that will be revisited again and again. It was pretty much your average introduction to perspective; not horrible, not wonderful, a little dated in presentation. Nov 02, Homosapiens rated it really liked it. Jan 12, Tun Win Naing rated it really liked it. Recommended for a complete beginner. Although later chapters need more time, most of the books can be easily approached by everyone.
