Uncover the beauty of the divine proportion all around you with this meticulously researched and stunningly illustrated reference.

From the pyramids of Giza, to quasicrystals, to the proportions of the human face, the golden ratio has an infinite capacity to generate shapes with exquisite properties. In The Golden Ratio: The Divine Beauty of Mathematics, Author Gary Meisner examines the presence of this divine number in art and architecture throughout history, as well as its ubiquity among plants, animals, and even the cosmos. This gorgeous, display-worthy volume features:

  • Lay-flat dimensions that closely approximate the golden ratio
  • The results of the author’s twenty-year investigation and collaboration with thousands of people across the globe in dozens of professions and walks of life
  • Clear, enlightening, and entertaining commentary 
  • Over 250 captivating color images, including illustrations by Venezuelan artist and architect Rafael Araujo, photographs of nature and architecture, and famous artwork

The evidence closes the gaps of understanding related to many claims of the golden ratio’s appearances and applications, and presents new findings to take our knowledge further yet.

Whoever you are, and whatever you may know about this topic, you’ll find something new, interesting, and informative in this book, and may find yourself challenged to see, apply, and share this unique number of mathematics and science in new ways.
