This book on Symmetry is amazing as it gives many examples and explains the background of the many different styles. It would be nice if it were bigger in physical size but makes up for it being loaded with lots of great information

HASH(0xa76b5d38) out of 5 stars Excellent Art-wise, Excellent Variety-wise, Too Terse on Explanations Sept. 9 2008
By Mark A. Weiss - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I already crammed so much into the title of my review that the title almost says it all. This is a beautiful book to be sure. The book also is full of a variety of content. The price is certainly great for what you get. But being very knowledgeable about most (but not all) of this book, I can say that some of the explanations are too terse for a lay audience. Still there are great facts amidst the text too. I really would like a 4.5 rating, but I give the book a 4 because I think the book tends to make some readers want meatier text / explanation that it provides. But what is there is beautiful and varied in kinds of content.

HASH(0xa744f1e0) out of 5 stars excellent little book series June 30 2011
By J. Zolli - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Every book in this wonderful series is a true gem of knowledge. Easy enough to tote in your daybag, it makes for a stimulating read on the bus. The Wooden Book series is great, I have a great number of them in my library, and they explain complex and ancient concepts with ease and really beautiful graphic design. the best of them incorporate old style line engraving illustrations with two color vector based designs. Good for students, artists, or the curious mind. I have myself used some of the knowledge and design principles in my own art and drawings to great effect. This series is a great resource for visual artists as well...

HASH(0xa744f1f8) out of 5 stars Symmetry - Architecture and Design - Nature speaks to us Dec 13 2014
By P. Stang - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is part of a series of books entitled "The Wooden Series" - I presently have 5 of the 30ish books. The full title is Symmetry The Ordering Principal. The books I am interested in pertain to graphic design, so that is the common element. I also have: Islamic Design, A genius for Geometry; The Golden Section, Nature's Greatest Secret; Ruler and Compass (tools of the trade), Practical Geometric Constructions; and Sacred Geometry. My interest is apparent. I have read each of these 5 books, which are generally short (50 pgs +/-) and are packed w/information on the stated topic. Intro to book- Symmetry has a very wide appeal; it is of as much interest to mathematicians as it is to artists & is relevant to physics as it is to architecture. I have been interested in physics & architectural design for years. This book and the others I bought feed my soul's desire for information, of a mathematical nature, in the ways of design & procedure. Don't recall how I first discovered this group of books, but very happy I did.
