    This book is great! If you're interested in this book and any other similar books, I suggest getting Quadrivium by Wooden Books. I made the mistake of purchasing this book and 4 others by Wooden Books, as well as Quadrivium and they are all contained in Quadrivium. I repeat, Quadrivium is a compilation of 6 Wooden Books! Buy the compilation and save big $$$

    I have about five of the books in the Wooden Books series, and this is one of my favorites. I really love sacred geometry, and this book is a very nice way to begin to understand the mathematics of music and the images sound creates. Like many of the Wooden Books, if you are already very well versed on the topic, this may not be up to your standards. However if like me, you want a concise overview, this is a great way to learn the basics of an interesting subject.

    Aside from a truly fascinating subject, the content is deliver fluff free. Many drawings which are worth a thousand words each. Quite the reference book.

    (I'm 14 writing this on my mom's account)
    This was not a topic I was especially interested in, but it was an informative book nonetheless. It was cool to learn about a tool that in a way makes music visual. The book also briefly touches on some simple music theory, as well as showing you how to make your own harmonograph. This wasn't the most exciting read, but still useful.

    It's hard to believe such a small book can be packed with so much information, and inspiring beauty. I was making my very own Lissajous figures, and this book quickly became a reference guide.

    If you're interested in music, math, and/or science but have a very short attention span and not much time on your hands this book is for you!

    Each page spread includes a short explanation accompanied by an illustration on the opposing page. Delightful and informative! A great book for the coffee table, or for short reads while on the toilet.

    It was interesting reading and beautifully illustrated. Though it wasn't as dense as other books from this publisher. It is mostly about how to build and work with a 19th century drawing machine.

    My back ground is engineering, and my two sons a both excel in trumpet and saxophone so I wanted to create visual effects from sound. This book while focused on the harmonograph it still breaks down the structure of music. This is a great book for me to begin my studies in Cymatic. I will be building a Thermin for them utilizing ideas learned from this book to create visual sound. Thanks Anthony Aston

    This book is brilliant! It gives a deceptively simple visual guide to the physics of harmony and is a brilliant starting point for anybody interested in the science behind music theory. It also comes with the author's fascinating "antiques adventure" story of discovering the charming victorian invention which produces the diagrams depicted throughout. There's a huge amount of useful information packed into this short book and it's a really great gateway to a whole new way of looking at (listening to?) music.

    this was surprisingly small and thin but for the price, cant complain! keep in mind the dimensions as this book was about the height of my hand and 1cm thick. in terms of content, ive always found maths quite interesting and how it relates to other seemingly irrelevant topics such as nature or music. its a great read for anyone who likes maths, music and learning new things

    Carefully and lovingly prepared, this is a beautiful book, about a fundamental principle of enormous but under recognized significance; Pythagoras' famous string experiment. Anthony Ashton's 'Harmonograph' details how Pythagoras ancient demonstration of the sound and structure of space time, led also to visualizations in space time of subtle beauty.


  12. says:

    If you don't understand the difference between Just Intonation and Equal Temperament, or why it is important (I didn't) this cute little book is for you.


  13. says:

    Concise and fascinating. History, music, science through the ages, with current relevance. Beauty in sound, leading to the interconnectedness of the sciences and music.
