Aim: To draw a book using extended vanishing points.

TIME:
Allow 40min

Materials:
The sketch pad,
HB pencil, ruler.

Construct margin and title box then:

a) As with the example in the previous lesson construct the lines as shown as if there were vanishing points off the page.

b) Complete the block lightly as it will form the basis of our book. Note CA is larger than DB, AB is larger than CD, AE is larger than BF and GC.

c) Lightly draw in some more main features of the book. It should now look as if it sits on the desk in front of the student.
