Description
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.
