Before our modern age of computer-aided design, manual drafting was once a lovingly nurtured and prized skill. Now, the editors of "Popular Mechanics" have revived their classic mechanical drawing handbook in a compact and beautifully produced new edition. Graphic designers, engineers, artists - in fact, anyone who appreciates the craft of hand-drawn design - will be fascinated by this lovely volume. More than an introduction to a different era, this practical course will teach a beginner everything, including explanation of the tools required, geometric exercises for various difficulty levels and an expansive glossary. A special course for novices teaches the fundamentals of drafting in seven easy steps. With its brand new foreword by the editors of "Popular Mechanics" and the original, elegant line art from the 1919 text, this essential course will be treasured by would-be artists of any age.
