By George K. Francis

Praise for George Francis's A Topological Picturebook:

Bravo to Springer for reissuing this precise and gorgeous publication! It not just reminds the older iteration of the pleasures of doing arithmetic via hand, but additionally exhibits the recent iteration what ``hands on'' fairly means.

- John Stillwell, collage of San Francisco

The Topological Picturebook has taught a complete iteration of mathematicians to attract, to determine, and to think.

- Tony Robbin, artist and writer of Shadows of truth: The Fourth size in Relativity, Cubism, and smooth Thought

The vintage reference for a way to offer topological information visually, filled with extraordinary hand-drawn pictures of complex surfaces.

- John Sullivan, Technische Universitat Berlin

A Topological Picturebook we could scholars see topology because the unique discoverers conceived it: concrete and visible, freed from the formalism that burdens traditional textbooks.

- Jeffrey Weeks, writer of The form of Space

A Topological Picturebook is a visible dinner party for somebody interested in mathematical images.  Francis offers beautiful examples to construct one's "visualization muscles".  even as, he explains the underlying rules and layout concepts for readers to create their very own lucid drawings.

- George W. Hart, Stony Brook University

In this number of narrative gemstones and interesting hand-drawn images, George Francis demonstrates the chicken-and-egg dating, in arithmetic, of photo and textual content. because the e-book used to be first released, the case for photos in arithmetic has been gained, and now it's time to think of their that means. A Topological Picturebook continues to be indispensable.

- Marjorie Senechal, Smith university and co-editor of the Mathematical Intelligencer
