It will help if you have some familiarity with the fundamentals of sacred geometry, or have read some of John's previous works on the subject as the book almost skims over the basic tenets and ratios, so impatient is it to get into the meaty areas like squaring the circle and the dimensions of the Heavenly City. It feels like the opening chapters were the last to be written and could have done with just a little more explanation to prevent them alienating newcomers to the subject. That may be the case - as John was still working on this book when he passed, perhaps those chapters had yet to receive a final draft revision.Read more ›
I own Quadrivium by Wooden Books, it got me interested in this subject and was a great introduction to Sacred Geometry among other things like Geometry in Music, etc. I feel that if you can grasp the concepts expressed in that book, this book by John Michell should be your next read.
The book consists of 1-2 pages for each image on the written subject, which are both very interesting to gaze at and/or study, and are also required in order to fully grasp the related Text.
The text takes the reader through the basic introduction of each chapter & page etc, before going into explanations and proofing, that can sometimes be quite in depth and require the reader to concentrate, or in my case, re-read a sentence from time to time.
The content may require imagination to understand a the concept, and even an interest in number to fully understand some of the aspects.
People who know a little about Sacred Geometry will not be disappointed. Although this book isn't "huge" and i could casually read it within a few days, this book will take many future hours & study sessions at my desk if i want to fully understand the all content here.
The writing is good, clear, concise and intriguing.
However, the illustrations are awful in such enlarged format. The little drawings don't do justice to the great text.
The price was excellent.
