Symmetry underlies almost every aspect of nature and our experience of the world, from the subatomic realms of quantum mechanics to the equations of physics, in art, architecture and our concepts of morality and justice.  In this little book Welsh writer and artist David Wade paints a picture of one of the most elusive and pervasive concepts known to man.
