Basics Freehand Drawing
Author: Florian Afflerbach
The importance of freehand drawing for educating architects is often underestimated. However, this craft is essential for any designer. The act of drawing shows you how to see and observe. It helps develop spatial imagination. A design idea can be quickly and easily clarified and displayed in only a few strokes. The sketch in perspective is vital in design presentations whether at the design academy or in meetings with contractors - every architect needs to master this craft. Basics Freehand Drawing explains step-by-step how to develop a perspective drawing from the initial structure of the image to various drawing techniques and use of color. It also shows in numerous color illustrations different drawing techniques and examples of presenting perspective drawings of buildings, interiors, and details.
Mother, Madonna, Whore

To Freud, female sexuality remained something of a mystery: a riddle and a dark continent. He urged his female colleagues to enlighten him. Many have since done so - and this book is a most vivid and illuminating contribution to the field.Welldon explores why the quality of their bodies is fundamental to women's psychology; how this may lead to self-mutilation; and how such perverse behavior may also be aimed at objects which women see as their own creations, specifically, their babies. The potential causes and consequences of these conditions, including maternal and paternal incest and its frequent aftermath, prostitution, are also discussed.
