Perspective Drawing, by Hermann von Baravalle
$ 7.95

Perspective Drawing involves both the application of geometric laws and artistic skill. It has immediately practical value for almost everyone who wishes to make a correct drawing of a house, of the interior of a room or of specific details of a staircase, for instance. Perspective constructions open up a distinct awareness and sense of observation. We all deal with perspective; every photograph is a perspective presentation.
