Pi

1 5/8" x 1 1/16"
46 pages, alphabetically paginated.

"Pi are round, cornbread are square."  - Anon.

This is a tiny book containing four recipes for Pi:
   1. the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter.
   2. Wallis' Product
   3. the Gregory-Leibniz series
   4. Viele's Formula
- all running through the book in parallel , with increasing complexity. This sounds pretty dry, unless you're a Pi-est, so I've sweetened the book with two magnificent endpapers, depicting a giant metallic PI lounging on a Hawaiian beach, and in a snowy Norwegian forest. The typeface was chosen to evoke memories of old elementary school textbooks.

The book is bound in tan  paper printed with pink stripes, and has a paper title pasted on the cover.
