More on the artistic side I appreciated

```
The Invention of Infinity: Mathematics and Art in the Renaissance by J.V. Field
```

Its theme is the interaction of mathematical and artistic inquiries as characteristic of Western art in the Renaissance, with perspective and precise description of geometrical forms (such as polyhedra) as turning point, and embodied in several key artists such as Piero della Francesca, Leonardo da Vinci, Albrecht Dürer.

The same author has written a book dedicated to Piero della Francesca:

```
Piero Della Francesca: A Mathematician's Art
```

Another source are books about the camera obscura and pinhole photography.

More contemporary: the techniques used to enhance digital images and their perspective with mathematical models of camera lens deformation have given birth to relatively sophisticated applied mathematics. There are a few private companies such as DxO selling software to correct (among other things) perspective in image files by reversing the nonlinear effects of multiple lens systems found in camera.
