Children’s Book:
The History of Mathematics

My children’s book Wie die Mathematik in die Welt kam (How Mathematics Came to Be) features a cross-over between hand drawings and collage to illustrate German author Rainer Kirsch’s whimsical poem from 1986 that tells the story in funny verse of how things developed from the number one to higher mathematics, physics, and the world we live in today.
