Art Deco 101 - Study of Arches

This is an example of Art Deco arches. You'll notice that the center arch is ever so slightly peaked. That's how the peak is established for on many period radios. You can also do a round peak, which will pass muster. For a round peak you just draw one circle on the center line. You keep the concentric side circles which are required to produce the even spacing.

Douglas Milewski is a fantasy writer who liked drafting class too much. In his recent artistic struggles to produce art deco for his own covers, he found no internet sites dedicated to the technical underpinnings of the art. Seeing a niche that needed filling, he has documented his hard learned experiences. He doesn't claim that he's right, and would very much appreciate it if someone more competent would save him from his own folly.
