Firstly, I would like to say that I really liked this book. I am going to point out the important facts about this book,
whether you think they are pros or cons it's your choice:
1)The book covers one,two and three point perspective (which is everything actually, once you know that there only is
"infinite-point perspective" in nature). It also covers Circles and the Human body in perspective (the latter not
2)The only reason I can think of, for this book to be only for comic book artists is that it is in comic book format. That is
to say the lessons are depicted as a story of the writer (i think) and an imaginary friend (Mugg,he has a mug for a head,
that is actually clever because you know where he is looking just by seeing his head from the top). And it is in 6-panel pages,the old style. Well the art is impressive and it is all in perspective so, make your choice.
3)Last thing to point is to whom it would appeal. This is actually tricky. Half the book talks to people who know nothing
about perspective and even tries to ensure them that perspective ir right!. This only happens in the beggining though and very
abruptly you are confronted with difficult methods and concepts. You just have to keep on reading, trust me.
As an epilogue, I would like to say that this book by David Chelsea is not a classic text-book. You might think that a lot of pages are gone to waste,even if you like it (I did), but the fact is that it covers Everything and it is for both thinkers
and easy-way-ers (oops). If you want to find all the answers they are there. If you want a classic art school text book ,this is not it. It could be, but it is in comic book format.
