This volume describes, in words and with artworks, the basic principles of numbers - arithmetic, whole numbers, natural numbers and the concepts of zero and infinity. It examines: how old numbers are and how they were developed; who invented algebra, geometry and calculus; how these ideas affect our daily lives; and the ways in which numbers have been used in art, music and other disciplines.
