Oh well, this just makes my efforts look feeble! by Wenzel Jamnitzer, from his book Perspectiva Corporum Regularium (Perspective of Regular Solids) 1568, which is full of amazing images like this. WJ was a German goldsmith and artist - not a geometrician or mathematician as I would have imagined. Working in the Northern Mannerist style, he was a court goldsmith, clearly extremely skilled, and must have been very important.
Welcome to my blog, where I share what I have been doing during the week.
I have at last copied my nom-de-plume Binky McKee blog entries from here to their own blog, having given the illustration website an overhaul. Peace and tranquillity may resume here in the somewhat quieter nature of Heather Eliza's work, while Binky has her own rather more colourful Weekly. Please visit Binky McKee if you would like to visit!
