An essential addition to any artist's bookshelf

From the Back Cover
Perspective, the author tells us, is easy; yet surprisingly few artists are aware of the simple rules that make it so. This easy-to-follow book—the first devoted entirely to clarifying the laws of perspective—remedies the situation. In it, the author uses over 250 simple line drawings to illustrate the concepts involved.
Beginning with clear, concise, immediately applicable discussions of the horizon, vanishing point, and the crucial relationship of eye level to perspective drawing, you'll learn how to place figures and objects in a drawing, depict interiors, create shade and shadows, and achieve all the other elements necessary for a successful perspective drawing. By repeatedly stressing important points, Mr. Norling teaches you to make them second-nature. Moreover, his approach is so simple and direct that no matter how little raw talent or experience you have, you will soon be able to apply these techniques almost instinctively.
Mastery of perspective is a basic skill every artist must have. This simple, nontechnical guide will enable you to master its essentials in a relatively short time. Clear and concise, this book is an essential addition to any artist's bookshelf.

A lot of ideas you'll find in some anatomy books, like Loomis' Figure Drawing, is drawing the body in perspective and around the horizon. This book helps understand those ideas when the anatomy book doesn't expand on it. Plus it'll help expand on drawing forms of the body in perspective for adding more realism. I think Figure Drawing Design and Invention with all the forms it teaches the reader.
The only upsetting thing was mine came with a dog eared cover, kinda large, but it probably would have happened anyway at some point.

I bought this book some time ago and have since put many hours of study into what it teaches - it has helped me out immensely. If you are struggling to wrap your head around this area of art then buy this book and absorb everything in it.
