I was given Quadrivium as a gift for Christmas and have been reading it on and off since then. It illustrates many of the ideas of the four classic liberal arts developed by Euclid, Archimedes, and many others: number, geometry, music, and cosmology. It’s not a particularly deep book, but it covers a wonderful array of topics, and has quite exquisite and detailed illustrations. When reading it, I was struck by the sheer lack of exposure I had had to a lot of these core ideas.
