Book: In pursuit of Elegance 

Was re-reading this book today. And although I had read it two years ago, I still found it absolutely Lovely. It had very valid points on elegance, simplicity and the incomplete feeling that beauty always leaves behind. Directed at both creative and ‘economic’ minds, the  author explains that elegance is composed of symmetry, seduction, subtraction and sustainability. Combined in distinct ways, the four categories create ‘elegant’ solutions that appeal to the intellect as much as they do to the emotions. These elegant solutions can be found everywhere around us: from nature, to iPhones, to Pollocks. A perspective  of creations that is well grounded and filled with scientific and artistic examples.
