Sacred Geometry : a 16th Century Coloring Book 2nd Edition!

This unique coloring book is a compilation of machine-drawn patterns generated by a rose engine. Rose engines are hand-operated machines that were developed in the 16th century and used during the Victorian era for the decorative turning of wood, ivory, metal, and ceramics. The geometry of the patterns is determined by mathematical sequences often associated with sacred geometry and the golden mean. The MADE Ornamental Rose Engine Lathe, a modern machine designed in the tradition of the past, was used to create these patterns.

The front and back cover are pressed with white and silver foil. The binding is spiraled white metal wire, allowing the book to lay flat as you color. In addition to the original patterns, we have added another 17, making 88 unique patterns.

The book is printed on 180lb uncoated white paper – so your coloring utensils won’t bleed through and colors stay true. This book is limited to 300 copies and is handmade here in Seattle Washington.

For the technically interested, we’ve put together a book of receipts. This lists the steps for how to generate each pattern on the rose engine.

For those of you interested in the special edition – we will be releasing another set of 24 this October, which will be available for pre-order soon! This version will be signed by the authors & the MADE lathe team and comes in a hand dyed muslin bag with a MADE lathe enamel pin, a nickel silver guilloché spinning top, the book of receipts, and a few other extras!
