Beautiful Geometry by Eli Maor & Eugen Jost


This reminds me of my teenaged distractions with geometric art while my eyes glazed over during grade 10 math class.

Looks to be a very interesting book. Thanks to Acid Free Pulp for bringing this to our attention.

After a tiresome evening out a few years ago, I, along with a few other sleepy souls, was stuck on a subway train platform in the middle of the night.

He gave me the exhibition’s promotional card and the next morning I looked him up. The artist† was a professor of mathematics who used his knowledge to produce math-inspired artwork. Except for the drawings of MC Escher, I had never really taken into account the role math could take in visual art.
