The author provides the means by which students and interior degigners can learn to draw interior perspectives through the use of a basic formula. He offers an easily accessible and quickly learned method that will serve every interior designer's drawing needs. All that is required is familiarity with plan, section, and elevation drawings and the basic skills of using drafting tools.
