Symmetry: The Ordering Principle

by David Wade - £5.99  Wooden Books (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781904263517 | ISBN 10: 1904263518

Why on earth do cars have the same symmetry as dragonflies?
Is there really a beautiful swirling pattern lurking in every dripping tap?
What do insect eggs have in common with planets, and why?
 
In this exquisite book, the smallest and most concise ever produced, designer David Wade introduces the main principles of symmetry, and shows how, despite opinions over what exactly it is, symmetry can be found in almost every corner of science, nature, and human culture.
