Russell Maret 2014
Thirteen Euclidean Propositions translated by Sir Thomas Little Heath
Commentary & Illustrations written, drawn and letterpress printed by Russell Maret
Unique copy of an edition of 75
345 x 283 x 32 mm

The concertina book has two separate boards covered in blackberry goatskin. Various coloured leather onlays. The binding is housed in a purple cloth-covered Solander box with the title on the spine. The walls of the box are covered in 3 different colours.

It's an illustrated edition of thirteen propositions from Heath's translation of Euclid's Elements of Geometry with Maret's personal commentary on geometry, literature, and letterforms. The design comes directly from the drawings of propositions. It shows the starting points of thirteen selected propositions (except two propositions, which have more than the starting points). The thirteen propositions were layered to make a composition which is possible to represent in two dimensions but not geometrically possible for it to exist in the physical world.
