Ghyka, Matila. The Geometry of Art and Life, 1946 (slightly corrected reproduction, New York: Dover Publications, 1977). "The Author believes that there are such things as "the mathematics of Life" and "the Mathematics of Art" and that the two coincide. Using simple mathematical formulas...Prof. Ghyka shows the fascinating relationships between geometry, aesthetics, nature and the human body" (Comments from the book's cover). Please be aware that Ghyka's work has been subject to severe criticism recently. (NNJ Reader's comment).
