From the interdisciplinary perspectives of archaeology, jewellery design, illustration and landscape architecture, this innovative volume highlights how drawing is used in the professional world. With examples from both contemporary and historical contexts, this book will be an invaluable resource for practitioners and scholars seeking a rationale for why we draw."--BOOK JACKET.
