It's Good for Reference, but Not Instruction
on July 5, 2013
Although I'm a self-taught artist and I've never taken art class (except in middle school, which was required, but I learned nothing), my perspective needed work so I bought this book as a way to learn about perspective grids or certain tips and tricks to measure the distance between objects.
Unfortunately, this book includes a lot of pictures and explanations, but no actual instructions, which I was looking forward to. It doesn't tell you "how" to construct a certain grid or certain lines, it just has several illustrations and information relating to it.
If you're someone who can observe something and make something out of it, this book is suitable for you. But for me, this will just be a reference to how things work in perspective.
