Abstract

"Beautiful Geometry." Eli Maor and Eugen Jost. Princeton University Press. January 2014. --- How do art and mathematics cross over? Beautiful Geometry is an attractively designed coffee table book that has 51 short chapters, each consisting of an essay by the mathematical historian Eli Maor on a single topic, together with a colour plate by the artist Eugen Jost.The book achieves its aim to demonstrate that there is visual beauty in mathematics, finds Konrad Swanepoel. It is heartily recommended to mathematics students who want to broaden their horizons and to teachers of mathematics at school level.
