I know. It's a drawing technique he employed called isometric.
I'm learning new versions of programs and so I get to spend time on this stuff.
I was going to make a little program for people to design their own puppet booth but I have lost my file of all the proscenium shapes.
It has been my experience that I am always true from my point of view, and am often wrong from the point of view of my honest critics. I know that we are both right from our respective points of view. - Gandhi (Having a bob each way.)

Chris wrote a nice article about Prosceniums a while back, was thinking about it just the other day. Worth revisiting me thinks. Isometric drawing, remember that from school, funny little grids under your paper to help.

<img src="images/isometric.gif" align="left">
Isometric projection is a way of drawing an object in 3D where all vertical lines on the object remain vertical while horizontal lines are drawn at 30° to the horizontal. Perspective is ignored. The advantage is that this form of drawing shows the object's dimensions accurately and in correct proportion to each other, making it easy to draw the projection correctly to scale from a plan view.

See, my technical drawing classes weren't wasted - although nowhere near as much fun as Woodwork.

James mentioned the piece on designing prosceniums. It is on this website of course, among the Punchman's Tips.
