My book “Paradossi per pratticare la prospettiva senza saperla” by Giulio Troili is about different ways perspectives can be used in drawings and their typical geometries. Therefore I firstly used the keyword “perspective” but unfortunately I couldn’t find something that is closely related to my book. So my next try was “pratticare la prospettiva” which lead me to my first book. As I continued with my research I tried to use a different “brain” for Alice. Sadly, I had no success with “drawings” and “geometry”. Many of the books used the words in an other context then I was looking for. After quiet some attempts I struggled coming up with keywords, because of that I started to get inspiration in my first book. Later on I found my second book still with the brain “architecture” and the keyword “perspective view”. The relation to my book is more in an open context nevertheless it allows the reader to compare the practices of the modern and ancient times.
- “Drawing after Architecture” by Carolyn Yerkes discusses the topic of drawings and their different influences regarding the perspective. One chapter of the book is illustrated with a lot of drawings of mainly Italian, French and Greek architecture. In comparison to my book, it focuses less on the technical part of the perspective but more on the effect on the viewers. The impact of the perspective is essential whether it is a geometrical drawing or more of an interpretative illustration.
- “Photographic architecture in the twentieth century” by Claire Zimmerman deals with similar topics like my book does. But instead of drawings it uses a more contemporary context – photography. Zimmerman explains the arrangements in the pictures and their intentions. With this modern treatise over the same topic, it gives the people the possibility to discuss and compare the differences and similarities through out time.
