Geometry is both elegantly simple and infinitely profound. Many professionals find they need to be able to draw geometric shapes accurately, and this unique book shows them how.
It provides step-by-step instructions for constructing two-dimensional geometric shapes, which can be readily followed by a beginner, or used as an invaluable source book by students and professionals.
'The author has produced a reference work for those wishing to construct regular polyhedra and an interesting collection of photographs of plants.' -- Science Group of the Anthroposophical Society in Great Britain Newsletter 'Simply an excellent guide book ... it subtly leads into a meditative state followed by the catharsis of achieving perfection. Beyond that it encourages the intelligent eye to go exploring for these shapes in nature ... a splendid inspiration.' -- Francis Cameron, Pentacle Magazine 'A simple and beautiful book ... The beauty of the proportions is palpable, especially when illustrated alongside the flowers whose designs reflect the same principles. The instructions and illustrations are equally clear.' -- Scientific and Medical Network Review, Winter 2007
