Book Description

1 July 2006 Dover Art Instruction
With trademark humor, Doust turns his expert eye toward the "dreaded, horrid word" perspective. He carefully explains the roles of lines, boxes, and circles, and shows how visualizing shapes and forms can be used in accurate depictions of perspective. One of the most concise introductions available for beginners. 33 illustrations.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing 13 Dec 2010
By kelsey
Format:Paperback
this is disappointing as the cover looks as if this book would be easy to follow, it is not. it is not for beginners as the language is difficult to understand. if i had been able to look inside this book before i bought it, i would not have bought it.

Format:Paperback
Was hoping for something different on perspective, but this has the same old things with very poor illustrations. I wish I had sent it back.

It's a very good book for the beginner as it sets the way how to look at perspectives so draw what you see not what you think.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic Perspective 16 Mar 2011
By "extreme_dig_cm" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I actually like this little guide, because it's an interesting look at the past.

This slim book by Len Doust is a bit different in its teaching method. In his attempt to simplify the basic principles of perspective, he avoids standard teaching terms common to most other books: one-point perspective, two-point perspective, three-point perspective, vanishing point, etc. It's kind of interesting- he uses more words than he needs to to describe all these things, although he does cover these basics. About 33 pages have somewhat sketchy illustrations. Originally released in 1934 as Simple Perspective, I think Dover was very smart to re-title this the way they did.

Still, I really only recommend this for curiosity's sake, as a nice little blast from the past. If people are looking for more standard & in-depth perspective guides, my favorites include Perspective Drawing Handbook created in 1964, and Perspective Made Easy created in 1939. Both are still popular today.

I havent had a chance to actually get down and study the book but what I have read has helped me a lot.
It does what is says it does. I personally think it needs more illustrations. They r easier to follow.

This book is a great guide that touched all the beginning basics with respect to drawing with perspective spacing and content. Very straight forward illustrations and plain direct content that provides an understandable reason for each tip given
