“While the tangram is often said to be ancient, the earliest known printed reference to tangrams appears in a Chinese book dated 1813, which was probably written during the reign of the Jiaqing Emperor.[1]” The o.5 dilation inscribed lower right in the clay tablet above could easily have produced the geometry of a tangram 3,700 years ago in Babylon.

I liked the old cover design, but, it originated back when the book included every dilation under the sun, the sun it’s self and a few others. This new cover reflects the clarified state of affairs for the “graphic design edition.”dds.gif
