Ernest Norling (1892 -1974) was a stalwart of the New Deal Mural Projects whose two publications on Perspective are models of the way training manuals should be for artists. The illustrations and examples are innovative in that they stress modern objects and scenes. From his cover to the Foster publication, Perspective Drawing, it is sure he has a keen sense of the absurd, and few artists after Hogarth find Perpsective and its aberrations funny.
