Item description for Connections: The Geometric Bridge Between Art and Science by Jay Kappraff...

The first edition of Connections was chosen by the National Association of Publishers (USA) as the best book in "Mathematics, Chemistry, and Astronomy - Professional and Reference" in 1991. It has been a comprehensive reference in design science, bringing together in a single volume material from the areas of proportion in architecture and design, tilings and patterns, polyhedra, and symmetry. The book presents both theory and practice and has more than 750 illustrations. It is suitable for research in a variety of fields and as an aid to teaching a course in the mathematics of design. It has been influential in stimulating the burgeoning interest in the relationship between mathematics and design. In the second edition there are five new sections, supplementary, as well as a new preface describing the advances in design science since the publication of the first edition.

Reviews - What do customers think about Connections: The Geometric Bridge Between Art and Science?

Has become a classic  Feb 17, 2010
Jay Kappraff has indirectly become an inspiration to my work.
Gary Adamson read an early book by Dr. Kappraff and
through his articles passed on the spark to me.
I missed this book when it came out originally
and would have missed this too if it wasn't for the San Diego county
library system. He covers a lot about tiling theory that I still hadn't seen.
One of his major points is that certain types of geometry
are basic to what we recognize as beauty.
The fractals and tiling systems with their symmetry
are part of that is important to fractal art as well.
I liked the book and would like to have more time to study it.
The price blocks that.
