4.0 out of 5 stars Good book but no word on 3 point perspective! 6 Dec 2005
It's a classic first published in 1939! One thing that amazes me in this book is it's clarity, the author explains in a straightforward way what perspective is, how you should draw in perspective and the problems you may have while doing so. All this without wasted words, pages or drawing! In the last page it even includes a summary that resumes all the important thing in the book that you need to remember.
Unfortunately this book only covers the commonly used perspective, sure it has a chapter about unusual perspective but that's just it. Even worst and a really almost maximum fault is the total absence of the three point perspective, not once in the entire book the author tackles this important form of perspective. Should writing style been worse and I would rate it 2 stars but since it's style is great I'll give it 4 stars... but be warned there is no info about there point perspective in this book!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good perspective on view points..... 14 Sep 2004
I bought this book and that of Rex Vivat Cole and felt that this book was much more accessible. It clearly illustrates how to create different perspectives from different view points. Suggests doing certain practise skills and has a list of hints and tips which summarise each chapter.
Perhaps my only gripe was that it did not delve into the most technical aspects of perspective drawing. There's a section on architectural perspective, but it's a last addition to the book as it is the final chapter. So while it gives a good progress to beginners it will only take you so far. A few more illustrations, particularly of real life examples (paintings by other artists of perspective use) might've gone down well.
It does not include anything about the use of perspective charts either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful 13 Feb 2009
It's great that this book is going to be reprinted again, since its first publication in 1939. It's a very useful book.

All the concepts of perspective are explained in plain and simple English. It teaches the basic foundation well, in a progressive manner where you build onto what you've learned earlier. Included are examples that emphasis the lesson point effectively. Once you get it, you get it forever.

Google Book Search has a limited preview of Perspective Made Easy.

For the low price, it's worth every cent.
