The Renaissance artist Wentzel Jamnitzer designed series of intriguing polyhedra in perspective in his book
“Perspectiva Corporum Regularium��?. In this paper we investigate the possible principles of the construction of
the polyhedra and create 3D computer models of them. Comparing those to the originals, we get an idea of
how successful he was in drawing the complex structures by imagination. Furthermore, we analyse Jamnitzer's
use of linear perspective, an important key in creating such drawings.
