Design is fine. History is mine.

Imagine a time with no computers.
Oliver Byrne, The First Six Books of the Elements of Euclid, 1847.
The book has become the subject of renewed interest for its innovative graphic conception and its style which prefigures the modernist experiments of the Bauhaus and De Stijl movements.
