Byrne's Euclid

This book was written by Oliver Byrne in 1847 in an effort to explain Euclidean Geometry to students in a completely different way. As opposed to naming lines and angles with letters and symbols, Byrne uses primary colors and shapes to explain the concepts visually.

Geometry is something I use every time I draft a pattern (often in a bunch of different magic marker colors), so I find it very interesting. Taschen has just re-released this book in its original state. I might just have to cough up 50 dollars...

Seems like someone else also came across this book:
