Over 400 illustrations demonstrate a guide to the technique of constructing 3D drawings without the use of perspective. Vantage points shown range from a straight-on oblique angle through cut-away, exploded, layered, and transparent perspectives-to "birds-eye" and "worm's-eye" views. Chapters progress from construction of basic paraline drawing through shadow casting, rendering techniques, exploration of point-of-view, axonometric in design analysis, axonometric in design process, layout, composition, reprographic techniques, and fully integrated presentations. The only complete guide to axonometric and oblique drawing ever produced.
