(Sorry if you're finding this for the second time as I've just found the forum in a new location.)

I am a researcher investigating Constructional Geometry. I'm asking for you favorite cross-over books on applied geometry (outside of critique).

My Favorite:
A classic: The Geometry of Art and Life by Matila Ghyka, 1977. You just got to love the 70s; so many cross overs! Ghyka is inspiring but not complete as his book has no bibliography! I'm stuck here (anyone heard of a reverse bibliography index? (>_<)

I'm looking forward to your responses.
