5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible work of depth, clarity and beauty, 5 Jun 2001
This review is from: Sacred Geometry: Philosophy and Practice (Art and Imagination) (Paperback)
Robert Lawlor elegantly sums up the genesis of sacred geometry and casts light on much of the western world's esoteric tradition. This is a book to which I have returned again and again in my studies and which constantly reminds me of the unity inherant in that which we variously refer to as nature, universe or God.
Clearly explained excercises talk the reader through construction of the basic geometric forms and act as invaluble aid to conception. Constant reminders of the interpretations of other world religions and spiritual practices, as well as references to those of modern science, give the reader an undeniable sense of the universality of the symbols studied.
With many illustrations and an awe inspiring amount of information, this book is literally bursting to give new life to the noble study of geometry.
Thank you Mr. Lawlor!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, 20 Jan 2010

This review is from: Sacred Geometry: Philosophy and Practice (Art and Imagination) (Paperback)
This book contains examples of the use of geometry in Architecture, and inspired me to get out my (sixty year old and hardly used) school protractor, ruler and compasses and try out some of the examples for myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars fantastic images, 10 Sep 2004

...just let down a bit by the lack of discussion/chat. More explaination and it would have been fantastic - sadly those that don't need the description know the pictures and those that don't know the pictures still need an interpreter - Try the beginner guide to creating the universe or the final book of the Monstrous Maths series - at least as a warm-up act and then anything from Wooden Books
