Perspective, the author tells us, is easy; yet surprisingly few artists are aware of the simple rules that make it so. This easy-to-follow book the first devoted entirely to clarifying the laws of perspective remedies the situation. In it, the author uses over 250 simple line drawings to illustrate the concepts involved.
Beginning with clear, concise, immediately applicable discussions of the horizon, vanishing point, and the crucial relationship of eye level to perspective drawing, you'll learn how to place figures and objects in a drawing, depict interiors, create shade and shadows, and achieve all the other elements necessary for a successful perspective drawing. By repeatedly stressing important points, Mr. Norling teaches you to make them second-nature. Moreover, his approach is so simple and direct that no matter how little raw talent or experience you have, you will soon be able to apply these techniques almost instinctively.
Mastery of perspective is a basic skill every artist must have. This simple, nontechnical guide will enable you to master its essentials in a relatively short time. Clear and concise, this book is an essential addition to any artist's bookshelf."

The book may be a bit repetitive at times, but this is not annoying at all, it just makes the author sound as if he was teaching a class in school or college, and it helps you to easily remember the most important information presented. After reading this book my understanding of perspective and the perspective in my drawings have improved 100%. If you follow his teachings and exercises you will learn how to determine the perspective you need to apply to your drawing, whether you are drawing in the field or using photographs as a model, and you will soon start making your drawings look solid, deep and proportionate.
If you are only getting one book on perspective, get this one.
--Reviewed by M. E. Volmar
This is one of the few books out in the market that exactly delivers what it says on the back cover. And it's a reprint from 1939!
I'd give this book a rating of more than 5.
You can follow along, drawing each step, or just read through the book, (like I did), and you will still find yourself applying these techniques that make your drawings much more realistic and accurate looking.
In the introduction, the author says that we should not FORCE our drawings to fit into any rigid rules of perspective, but after reading this book, I find that I don't have to force the perspective rules, I can just subtly apply them as I go about my drawings.
The author has very nice, cute, and simple illustrations of his own, to show what he's talking about in each step of the process of understanding perspective correctly. This makes the book feel very user-friendly.
This book covers a lot of ground and information, but if you take your time and start at the beginning, you will reap big results with your own improved drawings.
Comparing price to benefit, this is easily the best value of any art technique book that I have ever purchased. Buy with confidence, this book amazing!
Using easily understood language the book starts with the basics, and each chapter therafter builds on these basics while adding new techniques and ideas. These topics are reinforced by a remember section at the end of each chapter, along with some problems to work out in your drawings. What's useful is all the explanations are real world examples that you can see for yourself, like the height of the horizon and locating vanishing points. At the end of the book is a summary of all the topics covered, each topic is condensed to one sentence, talk about concise. This is the clearest book on any subject I've ever read.
