1 Comment

To those who do not know mathematics it is difficult to get across a real feeling as to the beauty, the deepest beauty, of nature … If you want to learn about nature, to appreciate nature, it is necessary to understand the language that she speaks in.

Botanica Mathematica is our attempt to express one dialect of this language in an visual and tactile form.
