Perspective (yet again, sorry!)

it would seem like nobody read it correctly

1.) Take a photo, say a close up portrait.

2.) Print it as photo A

3.) Use a telephoto to take a photo of that photo.

4.) Zoom in full screen from different distances, creating another another set of photos B, C, d.

Can anyone tell the difference between the set of photos taken of the original photo A?

Nope, which shows that the viewing distance of a photo is irrelevant to perspective. The book is either 1.) wrong 2.) meaningless 3.) poorly explained.

If you're going to challenge something, challenge my statement: "viewing a flat photo from different distances has no impact on perspective." Show me a thought experiment that violates this with a clear counter example.

As a bonus question, tell me what "correct perspective" means and how a print viewed with "incorrect perspective" would be distorted.
