From the pyramids of Giza, to quasicrystals, to the proportions of the human face, the golden ratio has an infinite capacity to generate shapes with exquisite properties. Featuring clear, entertaining, and enlightening commentary alongside stunning full-colour 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 format and lay flat dimensions that closely approximate the golden ratio, this is the ultimate coffee-table book for math enthusiasts, architects, designers, and fans of sacred geometry.
