BibliOdyssey ain’t no ordinary blog. As well as posting some of the most sparklingly intelligent visual content around, they also provide an almost holy list of resources and books to keep you going for the rest of your days. Their latest post is a good example of their ability to completely amalgamate a healthy dose of science and art together in this mind-boggling series of 16th century, yes that’s 16th century, images by Jean François Niceron designed to help artists get to grips with perspective.
The good news is that even brainiac BibliOdyssey backs out when trying to explain the theories behind this man’s work, and to be honest if they can’t decode it then I haven’t got a chance. Give it a go yourself here or just enjoy the visuals (your call).
