I’ve been living in a very small space (31.5 square meters) with one other human for the last 18 months.
In such a small space you get to know each – and each others stuff – pretty well. Alexander, who I live with, likes maths and books. He has selves of full of maths books.
I’m not so into maths, my eyes are instead drawn to art.
The more I’ve seen maths books lying half-read around our tiny house, the more I’ve become interested in the art of their covers. Random swirls, personified numbers, and angry fish – it seems publishers are at a loss for images to represent abstract mathematics.
Here are my favorites. I hope you enjoy the surrealism.
