This book combines Robert W. Gill’s two classic volumes –
Basic Perspective and Creative Perspective – to provide a complete, clear and simple explanation of the principles of perspective. It demonstrates that an understanding of them – even in our technology-led world – is the key for architects and designers who want to produce great work.

Perspective: From Basic to Creative provides:
•    The all-in-one authoritative guide to perspective that all designers, architects and students need on their shelves.
•    Accessible text and timeless illustrations giving explanations of visual principles and step-by-step demonstrations of how to create accurate and convincing artwork.
•    A complete set of creative tools enabling you to gain a mastery of the illusion of perspective on page or screen.

Robert W. Gill was a practising designer and architectural renderer for his entire working life. He headed his own industrial design office and lectured in art and design at the Melbourne School of Art and Photography. He is the author of Rendering with Pen & Ink, also published by Thames & Hudson.
