Euclidean Construction


More than 2,000 years ago, in Ptolemy’s Alexandria, Euclid assembled the dispersed geometrical works of his Greek counterparts in a single comprehensive book.  Euclid’s Elements survives as a pinnacle of cultural expression, proving that well designed artifacts can preserve the best of long lost civilizations.  This video series demonstrates several practical geometric construction techniques used in designing The Euclidean Coin.
