Fantastic Geometry

(Author)
Available

Description

Deals with a little-known, short-lived, tradition of imaginative geometry that flourished in 16th century Germany, during the Northern Renaissance. The key figure in this movement was the goldsmith Wenzel Jamnitzer, whose graphic fantasies were an imaginative response to the newly rediscovered geometrical theories associated with such important figures as Pythagoras, Plato, Archimedes and Euclid - all part of the great revival of interest in Classical knowledge that characterised the Renaissance. 'Fantastic Geometry' provides a fairly comprehensive overview of the work of this group (with many illustrations), together with an account of the historical background and the sources of their inspiration. David Wade is a sculptor and photographer.
