# The textbook: Projective geometry applied to perspective art

*Projective Geometry applied to Perspective Art *is an inquiry-based course designed for sophomore- and junior-level mathematics majors, developed by Annalisa Crannell, Marc Frantz and myself. The current versions of the modules for the (future) textbook can be found here.
