Book Review: Perspective in Action

Perspective in Action: Creative Exercises for Depicting Spatial Representation from the Renaissance to the Digital Age, by David Chelsea is a unique drawing book focused on perspective through a graphic novel format.
According to the back cover, this book "presents thirty-three easy-to-follow multimedia projects based on famous perspective experiments, each one presented in comic book format. Chelsea teaches you how to use a wide range of mediums...to bring to life some of art history's most important perspective-related principles."

Throughout this book, there are drawings and illustrations in full-color, black-and-white, and gray-scale, as well as instructional text and tips. This book is divided into seven chapters, which are titled as Basics, Beginnings, Anamorphosis, Cabinets of Wonder, Six-Point Perspective, Stereo Perspective, and Motion Perspective. Also, there's an Introduction, Conclusion, and Index. 

Perspective in Action is an enjoyable book to add to your library collection, since it's geared towards all ages and especially recommended for those interested in drawing and art. 
Note: I received this book from Blogging for Books, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
