One of the best reasons to pick up this 112-page book is because you want to immerse yourself in a workbook that is full of illustrations. Lawlor uses examples from fine art, atomic structure, and various other components. This real-life spin on topics most of us might find inaccessible makes geometry that much simpler.
This book is designed for the hands-on learner. Lawlor introduces the concepts of geometry in a way that you can understand even the more complex principles. He sticks to facts in this seemingly short book, which still packs quite a punch.
Lawlor is qualified to write a book about art, beauty, and geometry, not only as a painter and sculpture, but also a historian of ancient science. Ultimately this book demonstrates that geometry plays a role in every aspect of beauty, from a single wildflower to the majestic Gothic cathedrals men built long ago. The interactivity of this book allows readers to truly engage in the exercises and to find clarity on difficult topics. Artists would greatly benefit from reading this book, as would they also benefit from The Painter's Secret Geometry: A Study of Composition in Art.
"The notion of zero also had its effect on our psychological conceptualizations. Ideas such as the finality of death and the fear of it, the separation of heaven and earth, the whole range of existential philosophies based on the despair and absurdity of a world followed by non-being, all owe much to the notion of zero."
The author recommends that you recreate the proofs thru his process of instruction of actually drawing the sacred geometric configurations. The author goes thru many geometric exercises described as workbooks of geometric configurations to prove secrets of creation or of God; following these workbooks results in experiencing creation itself.
"The primary geometric forms are considered to be the crystallizations of the creative thoughts of God, and the human hand, manipulation and constructing these forms, will learn to position itself in the essential poses of gesture-language."
