Why did Pythagoras pause outside a Blacksmith's workshop? Can the nature of Harmony really be understood visually? Why do harmonies leave gaps or 'commas' when added together? In this charming little book Anthony Ashton uses a Victorian device called a Harmonograph to tell the story of Harmony and the intervals in the scale. With useful appendices and exquisite line drawings this is a unique and original introduction to this magical subject. WOODEN BOOKS are small but packed with information. 'Fascinating' FINANCIAL TIMES. 'Beautiful' LONDON REVIEW OF BOOKS. 'Rich and Artful' THE LANCET. 'Genuinely mind-expanding' FORTEAN TIMES. 'Excellent' NEW SCIENTIST. 'Stunning' NEW YORK TIMES. Small books, big ideas.
