We’ve pulled some fascinating books full of shapes, geometry, repeating patterns, and designs.

You can look at a 19th century geometry textbook, a Japanese design book, an 18th century builders’ guide, colored idea books for wallpaper and fabric designers, a book of photographs of Peruvian textiles, and numerous other strange and wonderful tomes.

Stop by Special Collections tomorrow and take a look. We’re on the 3rd floor of the Providence Public Library, at the top of the big marble staircase. Bring your friends– Art//Archives is open to everyone!
