The winner of a host of prizes, this delicately laid-out book advises students how to approach a number of design principles. Including advice on everything from ‘how to draw a line’ to ‘how to sketch a one-point perspective of a rectangular interior space’ this is a must-have for anyone starting out in the field.—Will Coldwell, The Independent—
How to draw a line, the meaning of figure-ground theory, hand-lettering and the fact that windows look dark in the daytime each item has resonance beyond architecture. Books like this are brief tutorials in the art of seeing, a skill useful in every aspect of life on the planet.
