This is one of seven cases in an exhibit I curated from the Posner collection of rare books from the history of science and decorative arts. This exhibit took a look at examples of reticulation and how reticulated structures form both the physical world and the way that we think. I am interested in the success and failure of these metaphors, their birth and death.
