This math art letterpress print is based on the Golden Ratio or Golden Rectangle and the Fibonacci Sequence. Hand Printed on a Vandercook SP20 by Richard Kegler, using only found materials in the Western New York Book Arts Center, the print features:
—6 square blocks with pronounced wood grain printed from the backs of image blocks in the approximate ratio of 1:1.618.
—The number Phi (1.618033988749895...) printed in Gothic wood type.
—Fibonacci Sequence (The first number of the pattern is 0, the second number is 1, and each number after is equal to the two numbers before it added together.)
—The Greek letter Phi Φ and the word "Golden" printed from metal type.
—2 parallel 2pt printer's rule bent to approximate the golden ratio spiral.
