In 2012, Russell Maret began work on a book inspired by Euclid’s Elements of Geometry. The book that resulted in 2014, Interstices & Intersections or, An Autodidact Comprehends a Cube, consists of one proposition from each of the 13 books of Euclid. In response to these propositions, Maret wrote 13 companion texts, prior to designing the typefaces in which the texts would be printed. He then illustrated both his and Euclid’s texts, and proceeded to print the book by hand. In this talk, Russell will discuss the process of the books making within the context of historical editions of Euclid’s Elements.
