The present book demonstrates how a grid of dots can be used to teach students how to draw. The technique allows students to use geometry to draw basic shapes using straight lines, which can then be added together to form more complex images.

We could not locate much information about Arthur Forbriger (d. 1878). He was born in Germany and published several other books about art education--all rare. He was an instructor at Woodward High School in Cincinnati at the time of his death.
