GORDON, ROBERT PHILIP.
Perspective Drawing: A Designer's Method.
New York: Fairchild Books 2008. 1st Printing, paperback edition. Paperbound oblong format: about 8.5 inches tall by 11 inches wide 281 pages. Glossary, index. Description: Profusely illustrated in black and white and color. The publisher's blurb reads: ''This balances the need for detail with the need for spontaneity by establishing a connection between constructed perspective and freehand sketching. The techniques illustrated and discussed in this text enable students to design space as they are drawing it. One of the author's students described the effectiveness of this approach as making it 'one million times easier to draw freehand after learning these perspective techniques.' After studying the methods for constructing linear perspective, students produce a number of freehand sketches. They test each one with an overlay grid to verify the location of horizon lines, vanishing points and other key elements. With practice, they develop the ability to find these key points intuitively while sketching, so that they can draw freely and confidently.'' BINDING/CONDITION: paperback; Very Good condition.

MAY, JOHN; EDITED BY ANTHONY REID.
Handmade Houses & Other Buildings: The World of Vernacular Architecture.

Description: Features 300 illustrations, including 60 in color. The publisher's blurb reads: ''While we know and applaud the makers of great buildings, the creators of the more humble 'vernacular architecture' remain anonymous. This is an introductory guide to these everyday buildings, built to satisfy everyday needs, all over the world -- from whatever wood, earth, grass or stone that was to hand, in ways that offered practical solutions to the many challenges of climate or terrain. From the wooden churches of Eastern and Central Europe, the tower houses of Yemen, the efficient gers of Mongolia and the log cabins of North America to the towering treehouses of Indonesia, detailed profiles featuring diagrams and cross-sections illustrate and describe how each structure was built, and from which materials. A final chapter illustrates the revival of traditional building skills.'' BINDING/CONDITION: pictorial boards; a Fine book, with a Fine dust jacket. ISBN: 9780500342589

New York: American Heritage 1976. Hardbound about 12.5 inches tall by 9.5 wide 820 pages. Index. Red endpapers. Description: Profusely illustrated with black and white photographs. Following is taken from the editor's foreword: ''the most comprehensive pictorial review of the American architectural scene in all its main phases that has been attempted. In addition to taking all the superb photographs that are reproduced in these two volumes, G E Kidder Smith has documented each subject by, among other measures, copious field notes taken at the site, with the assistance of his wife Dorothea.'' This following portion comes from the author's own introduction: ''These volumes constitute primarily a visual panorama of architectural developments in America, beginning with the ingenious shelters of the southwest Indians of the twelfth century and concluding with the often awesome projects of our own time [1970s]. The selection of examples shown here is a personal once, but one made only after critical on the spot assessments of some three thousand structures. I was essential that each have architectural merit or historical significance.''
