This book has little to no text. However, with a very basic understanding of perspective (vanishing points, horizon line, boxes, spheres, etc.) you could create almost any one of the excersizes found in this book. There are incredible drawings of architectural elements all showing the perspective points, thus enabling the reader to copy relatively easily. This is a must for your reference library. If you're a complete beginner you will need to learn the basics first, but don't let that stop you from purchasing this reference work.
It's a great book for those interested in two and one point perspective. Drawings done by Jan Vredeman de Vries are amazing and enchanting. If you are someone, who is looking for challange in perspective drawing, you got it. It is one of my favorite books.
