Selections from The Badson Bookshelf:
Featuring the books on our shelf that we just can't live without.
Circle, Square, Triangle
by Bruno Munari, published by Princeton Architectural Press
I never thought I’d be so in love with a book about three shapes, but I am. Square Circle Triangle is actually three books, one on each shape, written/compiled by Bruno Munari as an exhaustive exploration of something so simple. Flipping through this book every now and again reminds me that no matter how simple you think something is, there’s always more to be learned or discovered about it. If you think about it, almost everything in this world can be simplified down to one of these three shapes... that basic design DNA of our world. For this reason, we keep it readily on our shelf.
