This step by step drawing tutorial will take a look at how to draw a book. Luckily, books are very easy to draw. They are basically a box with details.
Books come in many different variations, so feel free to take these steps and customize them to make your drawing of a book look however you wish. Add some color, a title, make it thinner or thicker, add a book mark, or whatever else you wish.
So get that pencil ready and let’s draw a book.
Begin by drawing the top of the book. The book that we’re drawing will be sitting on a table. Notice how the top portion of the book gets smaller as it extends away from the viewer. This is because the book is in 2 point perspective. This means that the edges of the book will not be parallel. Instead, they will eventually meet at a point called a vanishing point. It is important to have these lines like they are in the picture.
Now, you can draw the left edge of the book. Draw two lines that come directly down from each of the corners of the book. Then, connect those lines with a straight line.
Next we can draw the botom edge of the book. We’ll do this in the same manner that we drew the left side.
Now we can draw some of the details on the book. We can make the book look a bit more three dimensional by adding a smaller rectangle on the bottom edge of the book. We can also add a few more lines for the binding, as well as a small curved line for the pages inside of the book.
Now we can finish the drawing from the framework that we created in the previous steps. Go over your lines with a darker medium and erase any excess lines that you may have. You can add any details to the book that you like as well.
