From the reviews:

"The book in question is a survey of the history of this subject … . I do not know the author, but I came to trust her voice in the book, to trust her honesty and her judgments. I appreciated the clarity of her illustrations and her concern for the reader’s understanding. I found the book to be carefully written, and I was impressed with the immense amount of work that must have gone into writing it." (Greg St. George, Zentralblatt für Didaktik der Mathematik, Vol. 39, 2007)

"I was very pleased to find Kristi Andersen’s book on the history of the geometrical evolution of perspective. … Reading it from the point of view of someone who is interested in geometry as well as art, it is a fascinating book, but it also has much to offer the historian of mathematics. … it is extremely well produced and researched and makes an invaluable contribution to the literature on perspective as well as the history of geometry." (John Sharp, Journal of Mathematics and the Arts, Vol. 1 (4), 2007)
