In this book, you will find precise instructions with clear images on how to draw a range of geometric solids. The book includes both simple and more advanced drawings. Step-by-step instructional images are followed, in each case, by a full-colored picture of the finished solid, drawn with colored pencils. The instructions include those for drawing a tetrahedron, a tetrahedron inside a tetrahedron, a cube, a truncated cube, a cuboctahedron, a truncated octahedron, an octahedron inside a cube, a cube inside an octahedron, a stellated octahedron, a small stellated dodecahedron, a great stellated dodecahedron, a dodecahedron, an icosahedron, a dodecahedron inside an icosahedron, an icosahedron inside a dodecahedron, and the golden rectangles inside an icosahedron. There are also instructions on how to draw a golden ratio and a regular pentagon, hexagon and decagon with a ruler and compass.
