'This book was published to resolve a problem which worries architects, draftmen and students; that is, how to give a decorative effect to a purely technical design by adding graphic sketches. For a really good, well finished drawing not only requires good composition, neat writing and precise presentation, but also a certain amount of decoration to give an artistic effect, particularly in the case of purely technical drawings of facades. Many of these decorative finishing touches are used in architectural practice and their importance should never be underestimated. On the other hand the drawing should not be overcrowded with graphic effects for their own sake, or in order to hide faults in the design. The sketches which are published in the present edition have been taken directly from practice and show in their distinct modernity the present tendencies of a very extensive circle of artists. Here you find stylized presentations of human figures, animals, cars and trees, in which all details have been omitted to change pure presentation into simple, imaginative, artistic sketches. The book tries to develop the problem as far as possible. Besides numerous examples of the usual type, it incites the designer to use his own initiative and is, therefore, a really indispensable guide.'
