All about the circle!
“God is a circle whose centre is everywhere but whose circumference is nowhere”.
Circle means perfection, but also instability and movement. In nature soap bubbles are spherical and internal trees’ rings are circular; the legend tells that Giotto drew a perfect O, while perfection is tangible on Michelangelo’s “Tondo Doni” and Botticelli’s “Vergine col Bambino”. King Arthur’s knights were pairs around a round table, and nowadays people sit in a circle to make a decision or watch a show.
In this little but extraordinary encyclopedia, Bruno Munari explores the fascinating and mysterious world of the Circle.
