The author has achieved international reputation both as a writer and model-maker, but less generally known is that in his previous career he was not only an engine-designer of some note but also a teacher of engineering drawing. In this book he has amalgamated this experience with an appreciation of the difficulties often felt by model engineers when reading or making workshop drawings.

He explains not only the 'rules' but also the reasons why they are important, and, acting on the principle that one sketch is worth a thousand words, illustrates his points wherever possible. One of the merits of the book are the illustrations of 'conventions' which are now out of date but which are to be found on many of the drawings needed by the model engineer.
