Gillete's Designing with Light has a nice section of drafting in the back.

I heartily recommend the Gillete book for new lighting designers (It's commonly used as a college light design 101 text). The new edition is like $80... but don't panic. I found a used copy of an earlier edition for$7. The theory is all the same they just updated some of the technology... you'll be just fine with an older copy. So search amazon and other used book sources.
