For the first time, beginning interior designers can learn how to graphically communicate their ideas with a resource that is designed specifically for them! While traditional drafting books focus on architectural and engineering readers, Architectural Drafting for Interior Designers eliminates the "widgets" and irrelevant coverage that is often seen, and incorporates material and examples that are relevant and meaningful to today's interior designers. This book also addresses the specific needs of beginning interior designers by focusing on topics needed before AutoCAD is even introduced, such as how to draw a floor plan, how to use it to create an interior elevation, and how to understand the relationship between 2D and 3D drawings. The only book that is written to the standards of the NCIDQ and interior design trade associations like NKBA, this will provide readers with a strong, standards-based foundation in interior design.

David LaComb, Sage Colleges, Albany, NY: The organization of the book is good, from concepts of the subject to the implementation of the techniques- concentrating on the key building components typically encountered by the interior designer.
Stephen Huff, High Point University, NC: I would be very interested in receiving a copy of this text when it is finally published and I look forward to using it in my design coursework.
