           Product Description-Perspective for Interior Designers
The author provides the means by which students and interior degigners can learn to draw interior perspectives through the use
 of a basic formula. He offers an easily accessible and quickly learned method that will serve every interior designer's drawing
  needs. All that is required is familiarity with plan, section, and elevation drawings and the basic skills of using drafting tools.
   Beginning with a section on the fundamental technique of two-point perspective, which is presented through 14 sequential
 steps, Pile moves on to cover special situations (including one-point perspective, circular forms, reflective images, views from
    above, light effects and furniture); freehand perspective; camera techniques; case studies of 8 typical spaces, which are
      illustrated by 5 well-known designers; analysis of finished perspectives; and a review of computer-aided techniques.
Step-by-step demonstrations, analysis of constructed layouts, and illustrations of completed works make this volume a complete
                                                        and accurate guidebook.

This review is from: Perspective for Interior Designers (Paperback) Although I have had some background in perspective
drawing there are alway situations that may trip me up. I like the way this book demonstrates these concepts from a basic
viewpoint without being condescending or overly technical. I have used it to successfully teach perpective drawing to interior
design students who had no previous experience. I think this book is useful as well to budding illustrators and artists.

By Happy Writer "bookpole" (Williamstown, NJ United States)
This review is from: Perspective for Interior Designers (Paperback) This book takes perspective to another level. I have been
taught perspective before with 1, 2, and/ or 3 vanishing points, so I thought that I knew what I was doing. But sometimes I just
had to eyeball some of the perspective in my drawings, because objects would look too distorted. This book showed me what I
was doing (and taught at art school) that was acceptable but not perfect. Within the first few pages, I easily learned the correct
rules to doing perspective from a floor plan at any point of view that I choose. I am a graphic designer for retail interiors and
"Perspective for Interior Designers" has made my life so much easier. It's very easy to understand and follow...a must have!

A life saver, July 8, 2001 By Sonia A J Ashour (Al-Khobar Saudi Arabia)
This review is from: Perspective for Interior Designers (Paperback) I am an Interior Designer in SAudi Arabia and was asked to
teach a drawing class on short notice. No problem! What I didn't realize was Perspectives were part of the course. I went book
shopping. In Saudi Arabia that is no easy ordeal, besides there are so many realy bad perspective books out there. Anyway I
had an old copy of "Perspective for Interior Designers" and guess what? It is still the best and easiest book out there! It's straight
to the point. It is great for beginners. It takes you step by step through constructing a complete One Point, and Two Point
Perspective. It also deals with trouble points, such as stairs, ellipses, cones etc... Great Book! Could not have taught the class
without it. I ordered this book as an official text book for the " Foundations of Drawing IDES 1303" Class. Two thumbs up.
