In this newly revised second edition, veteran stage designers and technical directors Dennis Dorn and Mark Shanda introduce industry-standard drafting and designing practices with step-by-step discussions, illustrations, worksheets, and problems to help students develop and refine drafting and other related skills needed for entertainment set production work. By incorporating the foundational principles of both hand- and computer-drafting approaches throughout the entire book, the authors illustrate how to create clear and detailed drawings that advance the production process. 

Early chapters focus on the basics of geometric constructions, orthographic techniques, soft-line sketching applications, lettering, and dimensioning. Later chapters discuss real-life applications of production drawing and ancillary skills such as time and material estimation and shop-drawing nomenclature. Two chapters detail a series of design and shop drawings required to mount a specific design project, providing a guided path through both phases of the design/construction process. Most chapters conclude with one or more worksheets or problems that provide readers with an opportunity to test their understanding of the material presented. 

The authors' discussion of universal CAD principles throughout the manuscript provides a valuable foundation that can be used in any computer-based design, regardless of the software. Dorn and Shanda treat the computer as another drawing tool, like the pencil or T-square, but one that can help a knowledgeable drafter potentially increase personal productivity and accuracy when compared to traditional hand-drafting techniques. 

Drafting for the Theatre, second edition assembles in one book all the principal types of drawings, techniques, and conventional wisdom necessary for the production of scenic drafting, design, and shop drawings. It is richly illustrated with numerous production examples and is fully indexed to assist students and technicians in finding important information. It is structured to support a college-level course in drafting, but will also serve as a handy reference for the working theatre professional.

Through step-by-step illustrations, Diana Kingsley draws on her professional and academic experience to show readers how to create beautiful detailed interior design drawings to share with clients, with detailed examples showing how to render furniture, floors, walls, windows, plants in floor plans and elevations, using only drafting pencils, a T-square and a triangle. Instead of unattractive plain boxes for furniture, the reader will learn to define them with handsome detail. Beginning with instructions on how to line up a T-square on the paper, to easily set up and work on any drafting board and covering how to properly use tracing paper layering to expand design ideas, all the way through to completion of the little pieces of art representing design ideas and concepts.

The new edition builds on the success of the first edition, expanding the coverage of elevations by adding use of gray-tones for additional depth, adding new material on exterior and landscaping, and generally enhancing the content and drawings that make up the book's substance.
