From Truths to Tools




By Jim Tolpin and George Walker
Illustrated by Andrea Love

The tools we use sprung from thin air. Actually no air: They sprung from the discovery of a language of building based on the truths of geometry. This isn’t the geometry of theorems you learned in high school but rather a language that’s expressed with a piece of string, a straight edge, and a compass. As artisans became fluent in this language they invented the tools we use today that embody those truths. From Truths to Tools walks you through that language and gives you a better grasp of how the tools and truths work together. In other words, this book will make you a native speaker of this ancient language of the artisans.
