Book cover The Seduction of Curves by Allan McRobie
Book cover The Seduction of Curves and illustration VENII.

I am very impressed by the book ‘The Seduction of Curves‘ – The Lines of Beauty That Connect Mathematics, Art, and the Nude.
Published August 2017 by Allan McRobie with photography by Helena Weightman. (Hardcover, ISBN: 9780691175331).
I was pleased to be invited to contribute with an illustration of VENII 2005.
It is an eclectic book, full of fabulous images to illustrate curves and their fascinating connection to maths and art - maybe a Christmas present idea for art-lovers and maths lovers alike!
