Reviews - What do customers think about Perspective Made Easy?
My review Jun 19, 2008
Even though it does not appeat to the eye at first, the content is very, very good and teaches a lot. I keep it close and refer to it every time I have some difficulty while drawing in perspective.
Not for Interior Design Jun 17, 2008
This book just wasn't for me. Maybe I expected too much after reading all the praise for this book. But I found the explanations insufficient, most of the time I had to look at the little drawings and try to figure it out myself.
There's not much in terms of interior design, which is what I would like to sharpen my drawing skills for. At one point, Norling gives a drawing of a box, and then he tells you to turn it, so it becomes a room and you can place furniture in it. But how??
In my opinion, the book lacks clear instructions and step-by-step drawings.
I expected more, maybe I'll find it in Pile's book.
Elementary May 28, 2008
This book is extremely elementary; it's truly for somebody who has no art experience at all. If you are an Interior Designer looking for a book on perspective drawings chances are you already know way more than this book has to offer. I would recommend Perspective for Interior Designers by John Pile, it's extensive yet very clear and concise.

Good for a quick reference Apr 5, 2008
This book would be a good reference to have around if you've managed to paint yourself into a corner where your perspective doesn't work. Flipping through the pages, you'll probably discover why. The author gives simple exercises for those trying to figure out the principles of perspective in a very easy to understand manner. He covers things you might not think of such as where to space vanishing points, perspective up and down hill, false eye levels, reflections, shades, and shadows. There are many examples, all drawn, in each chapter.
