Up: The Adage Gallery Tour
This section is devoted to a loose category of drawing: those that use
the fundamental facilities of Adage. Some features of these include:
- The drawings are moderately simple compositions of lines, points
and text, and of simple filled areas. Lines are either straight or
basic curves, such as circle arcs.
- Straightforward geometric construction is used. Examples are
points of intersection of two lines, mid-points of lines, and
- Angle-preserving transformations (scale, rotate, and translate)
- Reasonable sophistication is required in text placement. In
particular, text can be placed with good controlled spacing next to
a line or in a corner.
