Description - The Abyss of Time by Martin Hutchinson

"The Abyss of Time: An architect's history of the Golden Section" explores the nature of the famous Fibonacci Series, its ability to produce the Golden Section proportions that regularly appear in ancient architecture, and the possibility that the Series (in conjunction with a hypothetical "Megalithic Foot") may once have been used as the basis of a standard measurement scale and system of architectural units in historic and prehistoric times. A talented architect, artist and musician, Hutchinson left an essentially-complete manuscript for "Abyss" -- when he died in 1973, his collection of essays on the reconstruction of missing details and forgotten information itself became another "missing book", whose name and contents could only be deduced from contemporary newspaper cuttings and lecture programmes. Resurrected after thirty-five years, and typeset and printed with modern technology, "Abyss" is now finally being published for the first time, in 2008.
