Platonic & Archimedean Solids ~ Daud Sutton
"Platonic & Archimedean Solids" was my first book from the Wooden Books collection. I've been addicted to their fine books ever since. Wooden Books are small, beautifully produced introductions to the Liberal Arts, captivating scientists and artists alike. With exquisite illustrations, superfine printing, and the finest quality recycled papers, this series is in a league of its own. Book 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.
