* Displacement may of course put the object once again outside the field of vision, in which case the only answer is to laterally shift the standpoint from A to B (Fig. 11.6) or to turn the object itself (angle a between object and picture plane changes to angk /3—Fig. 11.7)

When selecting your standpoint, take steps to ensure thai the lateral faces of the object do not assume an equal width in the drawing— a:a (Fig. 11.8). Uneven lengths should be achieved by shifting the standpoint—a:b—to give the right impression of length proportions (Fig. 11.9).
