“Polygons And Polyhedra” Set 1 of 10
This weekend I finally finished all the interior pages for a set of 10 art books I’ve been plugging away at all month. I still have to finish the covers and bind these, but I am pleased to be able to show these off for the first time.
Here is set 1 of 10. (I’m skipping straight to the Polygons this week because I showed off the basic set of Polygons last week.)
This brings us to the end of the book. What follows is the beginning of the book, which was duplicative of last week’s post, so relegated to the end.
In researching these, I learned a lot about geometry that had been forgotten in the long years since high school. I chose the selection and order that I did to try to maintain some of the logic that exists within the mathematics behind these forms. I’m sure that understanding this logic would help viewers appreciate what is being presented, and I’m tempted to go into depth on the issue, but this is art, not a math textbook, and at a basic level I think I prefer knowing that the viewer can find the information out for themselves or simply appreciate them as they are.
In future weeks, hopefully I’ll be able to post the covers and photos of finished books with the list of pages.
