Ode to Numbers, a new book by Ameyer, has been released by RoseDog Books.
Numbers are real, but they can be irrational; numbers are natural, but they can be negative.
Arabic or Roman, numbers depict quantities, combinations, permutations and probabilities.
They are used to add, subtract, multiply and divide;
To measure pain, space, volume and time.
Numbers exist with exponents, logarithms and reciprocals.
Numbers represent discounts, register markups, form indexes, or determine value.
Numbers solve problems, express rhythm, identify locations and find people.
Numbers are special, as for birthdays,
Promising, as for favorable odds,
Sexy, as in good figures.
Numbers deserve an ode!
About the Author
Ameyer has had brush or pen in hand since early childhood. At that time, impressions of immigrants arriving in New York City inspired a tempera-watercolor painting of the event against a skyscraper landscape and the American flag. The painting won the Wanamaker medal in a citywide competition for preschool children.
The full gamut, from solo exhibitions at a 57th Street art gallery in New York City, original works deposited in the Special Collections of the Hunter College Library of the City University of New York, to slides and biographical materials in the artists file at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, are among the artist’s accomplishments. More than five hundred original drawings, paintings and prints are owned by individuals and institutions, including: the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, the College of New Jersey and the Pines of Davidson, North Carolina.
Ode to Numbers is a 30-page paperback with a retail price of $16.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-8488-3. It was published by RoseDog Books of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
