Platonic & Archimedean Solids

Platonic & Archimedean Solids Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whereas Sacred Geometry introduced readers to two-dimensional forms, Platonic & Archimedean Solids presents the world of three dimensions, which was understood as early as neolithic time. Daud Sutton elegantly explores the eighteen forms—from the cube to the octahedron and icosidodecahedron—that are the universal building blocks of three-dimensional space, and shows the fascinating relationships between them. For anyone interested in design, architecture, and mathematics, this will be a delight.

"The fascinating, informative Wooden Books series blends ancient wisdom and modern knowledge. The books . . . will stimulate more thinking and subsequent 'Eureka' moments than a dozen novels laced with narrative innovation and postmodern stylings."—The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Review:

The books are thin, impeccably designed, and will stimulate more thinking and subsequent 'Eureka' moments than a dozen novels laced with narrative innovations and postmodern stylings." Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Synopsis:
