Taxonomy of Shapes challenges the reader’s perception of their environment and our current system of classification. The book uses icon-like imagery to represent elements from both natural and man-made environments, in combination with translucent overlays with geometric shapes cut out of them. These cut shapes define the three taxonomies of the circle, square and triangle. Taxonomy of Shapes introduces a new system of classification in which we find that a mountain is in the same category as a nose, a slice of pie and a bunch of grapes.
