This book should be required reading for all design students. Very well written with great illustrations. More design students -- and teachers as well -- need to be aware and familiar with the geometric principles behind, well... everything! Geometry is not just a way to mathematically analyze spacial relationships from works of art or architectural structures, but integral to the study of human interaction with, well... everything! Artwork on a wall, images and type on a page, digital interfaces, furniture in a room -- geometry is the heart of all understanding of the world around us and how we relate to it.

The updated book has valuable information with both graphic photos and structural overlays.
A good book for teaching and references for application.

This is an elegant introduction to the topic of ratio & proportion as they correlate to beauty. If its purpose is to convey a deeply rooted esteem and sense of appreciation for the geometry of design, it accomplishes this superbly. This book is an excellent addition to the library of a web developer or designer.

This book has been very helpful in assisting me on understanding geometry. I actually enjoyed looking through it and finding new information out and I hate math.

Format: Paperback
Error prone with sloppy, spurious illustration.
Starting with a search on "Marcus" you will find on page 12 that Marcus Vitruvius Pollio was an: "ancient Greek scholar and architect." She then proceeds to show how his canon works with the classical Greek Zeus. Jaw dropping since it is not just poor editing. She must really think Vitruvius was Greek. That was enough for me.
