From the Renaissance mathematician Luca Pacioli's elegant tome on the divine proportion --illustrated by his friend, Leonardo da Vinci--to quasi-crystalline structures, to the proportions of the human face, the golden ratio has an inexhaustible capacity to generate shapes with ex...quisite properties. Featuring clear, entertaining, and enlightening commentary alongside stunning full-color illustrations by Venezuelan artist and architect Rafael Araujo, this gorgeous book examines the presence of this divine number in art and architecture throughout history, as well as its ubiquity among plants, animals, and even the cosmos. With its lush coffee-table format, The Golden Ratio is an excellent gift and keepsake for math enthusiasts as well as fans of art and architecture.
