These complaints aside, it’s a very useful work on geometric composition. Samantha rated it liked it Apr 02, Aug 30, L rated it liked it.

The book focuses not only on the classic systems of proportioning, such as the golden section and root rectangles, but also on less well known proportioning systems such as the Fibonacci Series. It covers pieces from classic paintings to architecture starting with a digestible theoretical ground that holds elsm hand of the reader through the vast ammount of examples.
