• FROM BASIC SHAPES TO FRACTALS: THE FASCINATING DIVERSITY OF GEOMETRIC FORMS IN NATURE
• MORE THAN 100 EXAMPLES FROM THE ANIMAL, MINERAL, AND VEGETAL WORLDS
Nature is sometimes called the “most talented artist in the world”. Its creativity has no limits, and we often wonder at the spectacular shapes, colours, and contrasts we observe in nature. Geometric patterns are perhaps one of the most fascinating aspects of this phenomenon: it is enough to observe the perfect semi-circle formed by a rainbow, to examine a snowflake, or to admire the hexagonal shape of honeycombs to become aware of the infinite diversity of geometric forms in nature. This book showcases examples of geometric patterns in the vegetal, animal and mineral worlds, from basic shapes such as circles and spheres to complex structures following mathematical patterns, and even fractals. It invites its readers to discover, or rediscover, the intriguing link between nature and geometry.
