Shape and Form book
About 2300 years ago, Euclid of Alexandria wrote his famous book on geometry
called The Elements. This book, and its famous five postulates, became the basis of
what is now known as Euclidean geometry. The usual notion of distance in space,
essential when we design geometric forms in two or three dimensions, carries his
name (the “Euclidean metric”).
