"For years, Annalisa Crannell has brought her insights and excitement for perspective, both in geometry and art, to her teaching, writing, and workshops. Now, with coauthors Mark Frantz and Fumiko Futamura, she has produced a superb textbook on this subject, ideal for classes or self-study.”—Thomas Banchoff, former president of the Mathematical Association of America
“From Menelaus and elations to window taping and writing mathematics, this book provides a delightful mesh of classical geometry, perspective in art, beautiful graphics, and an exploratorium of exercises. Perspective and Projective Geometry is enjoyable reading and a valuable textbook for a variety of courses.”—Doug Norton, Villanova University
"Filled with ideas for rich and highly original classroom activities, Perspective and Projective Geometry guides students to make deep connections to the geometry in art. It is wholly different than any other textbook I’ve seen on projective geometry."—Jessica Sidman, Mount Holyoke College
