5.0 out of 5 stars Slender, but without question the FINEST of all introductions on PERSPECTIVE, June 28, 2004
This review is from: Perspective Drawing Handbook (Dover Art Instruction) (Paperback)
"PERSPECTIVE DRAWING HANDBOOK" by Joseph D`Amelio

Amelio really packed this book with well-illustrated covering of Perspective in Black & White. Better still, D`Amelio manages to keep text down to the bare essentials, preferring to illustrate the point rather than describe it. Fascinating. Nicely put together, and very concise at 96 pages. I really liked it.

Suggested retail at $8.95 this is a good reference, and eminently affordable. It seemed quite deserving of FIVE STARS for making an obscure subject clear to the general public with a direct, no-nonsense approach. What Stephen Rogers Peck does for anatomy, is what D'Amelio does for teaching PERSPECTIVE.

Here is the list of recommended books in the order of their importance.

"How to Draw the Human Figure" by José María Parramón

"Anatomy and Drawing" by Viktor Perard

"How to Draw the Human Figure" by Cortina Famous Schools Staff

"How to Draw What You See" by Rudy De Reyna

(There is a very good reason why Rudy De Reyna's book is in its 35th Anniversary edition.)

Also:

"Drawing From Nature" by Jim Arnosky (Landscapes, Mountains, streams, trees etc.

"How To Draw Animals" by Jack Hamm

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And the very best of good fortune to you in your drawing pursuits.--Bruce Bain
