ABOUT THIS BOOK
The first book to bring together the drafting techniques, descriptive geometry, engineering drawing, and graphics of perspective needed to plan and execute a setting for the theatre.
 
Parker presents these elements in a logical three-part format. “ The Language of Lines” offers a study of drafting techniques, conventions, and symbols peculiar to the theatre; “ Graphic Solutions” deals with the graphic problem-solving often needed to draw and make the frequent irregular forms of present-day scene design; and “ Perspective in the Theatre” treats the two-dimensional perspective of the designer’ s sketch and the three-dimensional perspective required for an illusion or stylistic concept.
