    does anyone know if you can find Civardi's complete guide to drawing as an ebook anywhere?

    It's a little sleazy to go asking for books that are readily available and not particularly expensive.

    Thanks for being so helpful elwell. Remember though that what is relatively inexpensive to you might be too much for a broke student who is spending all his money on medical bills after a motorcycle accident befor you decide to criticize me.

    That's right, no Vilppu, no Civardi.

    Let's not create any legal problems for the management, guys. The mods have been remarkably understanding in the case of currently out of print and difficult to obtain books, but Elwell is absolutely justified in drawing the line at Civardi, which is neither. I really think we should keep this thread for links on legitimate sites, such as archive.org or the Digital Library of India. The great majority of books on those sites are clearly out of copyright. There look to be a few possible exceptions here and there, but that is the concern of those sites, and in any case the possible exceptions are all by long-dead authors.

    I just did a google search for "Vilppu Drawing Manual" and saw three well-stocked e-book sites and one torrent site on the first two pages. So there's really no need to give Jason a headache.

    Thank you for posting these...now hundreds of hours of reading and drawing available on my 'puter!! Remember fro those who can't afford anew book the "half price book" places and used book stores are great places to pick up some of these works. I've gotten most of my Bridgeman, Loomis and Villppu from these types of stores.... learning away!

    Perspective books

    Thanks again for the responses, guys, you're all welcome. Someone on another thread was asking for some perspective book links, so I've just added these:

    Loomis, Andrew, 1951. Successful Drawing.
    http://acid.noobgrinder.com/Loomis/A...%20Drawing.rar (direct download link)

    Storey, G. A. The Theory and Practice of Perspective.
    http://www.gutenberg.org/files/20165/20165-h.zip (direct download link)

    Watson, Ernest W., 1955. How To Use Creative Perspective.
    http://www.archive.org/details/howto...ative036957mbp (poor scans)

    Longfellow, William Pitt Preble, 1901. Applied perspective, for architects and painters.
    http://www.archive.org/details/appli...ecti00longrich

    Miller, Leslie William, 1887. The essentials of perspective, with illustrations drawn by the author.
    http://www.archive.org/details/essentialsofpers00mill

    Great collection of scholarly articles on the history of perspective (Kim Veltman)
    http://www.mmi.unimaas.nl/people/Vel...tm#Perspective

    There are also quite a few other, mostly older books on perspective on both archive.org and googlebooks that I haven't looked at closely - just do a search.
