Two‑volume book, Drafting answers the Filipino students’ need for a practical, Filipino‑authored book that teaches the principles of general drafting.

German M. Manaois

Level/s: Senior High

Volume I introduces students to the general principles of drafting by teaching the following activities: freehand drawing, lettering, designing, measuring, technical sketching, and blueprint reading.

Volume II advances students to a higher course on drafting by exposing them to the work of practitioners in the field. It includes lessons on sectioning, scaling, drawing of auxilliary views, wood joints and metal fastening, furniture designing, and many more!

Many schools offering practical arts subjects have turned to Drafting because it—

  • facilitates learning through easy-to-read texts;
  • develops mental and manual skills;
  • offers ample work activities and self‑test questions;
  • includes useful study helps—list of important formulas and symbols, conversion table, and glossary of technical terms; and illustrates concepts and gives clear, precise lesson instructions.


Volume I: 1983

Volume II: 1983

Dr. Ernesto Y. Sibal was one of the few Filipinos in academic publishing who can irrefutably lay claim to these three titles—Patriot, Pioneer and Innovator. A staunch patriot, Dr. Sibal fiercely advocated the vision of designating Filipino-authored books for young Filipino learners. This vision was enabled by the establishment of Alemar’s Bookstore in 1958, and through the foresight and drive of Alegria Rodriguez, who shared in the vision of her husband, she helped galvanize then fledgling Alemar's Bookstore as the place to go for textbooks and school needs, propelling it to become the first established bookstore chain in the country.
