The best from twenty years of investigation, with many new discoveries
In Gary’s words, “This book contains the best of everything I’ve written over the past twenty years on the golden ratio. It covers:
- the very unique properties of the golden ratio in mathematics and geometry,
- the history of mankind’s fascination with this very special number, and the discoveries that it set in motion,
- the “secret science” of its applications in art, architecture and design, from ancient architecture to Renaissance art to modern logos,
- recently discovered appearances in nature and the universe, from the molecular level to the human face to black holes, and
- the incredibly polarizing controversies it has created, and the surprising misinformation that has become part of its lore.
This book is unlike any I’ve other seen on the golden ratio, with over 200 beautiful color images to clearly illustrate all the key concepts, with clear, entertaining, and enlightening commentary that will inform and inspire you. Creating this book required that every image I’ve ever presented at GoldenNumber.net be recreated in beautiful high resolution color, and challenged me to investigate each topic more deeply. This led to new discoveries that have never before been revealed. The golden ratio overlays created for many of the illustrations, with the pixel-level accuracy of my PhiMatrix software, provide new evidence that some thought would not be found.”
An educational text and exquisite coffee table book, all in one
The book has a refreshing and engaging balance between being an informative educational textbook and a visually inviting 9.2″ x 11.4″ coffee table book. When you lay its covers open, before you read the first word, you’ll be looking at the golden rectangle created by its 18.4″ x 11.4″ proportions. It will be a treasured possession or gift for anyone interested in mathematics, geometry, science, nature, history or any of the design arts.
