Design and Drawing.

DESIGN AND DRAWING. Richard L. Shadrin. Worcester: Davis Publications, 1992. Illustrated, 208 pp., hardcover, $24.95.

Originating from a syllabus for high school students in New York state, this profusely-illustrated book emphasizes architectural style, graphic design and product engineering. While problem-solving ideas relative to drawing and design are explored from concept to product, architecture receives much attention in both word and image. Fuller, Le Corbusier, Palladio, Saarinen and van der Rohe are featured along with da Vinci, Pollock and Mondrian. A practical and informative resource for high school artrooms.
