THESE ARE OTHER RECTANGLES THAT YOU MIGHT EXPERIMENT WITH
(fig. 1) We will first start with a square bisected diagonally. 

(fig. 2) Using the base corner as a point for your compass draw an arch from the opposite corner to the base and square the new area. This is a root 2 rectangle. 

(fig. 3) Extending the arch to begin at the NEW diagonal corner will create a root 3 rectangle. 

(fig. 4) Continuing this process will create additional roots the next being a root 4, which equals twice the height of the rectangle or two squares. 

(fig. 5) The root 5 rectangle has two golden sections in it. Notice that this is the same configuration used for the double page (ref. (fig. 9 & 10)) GOLDEN SECTION 

(fig.6) A SQUARE & TWO GOLDEN RECTANGLES. Another way of using the root 5 rectangle. This would make a fine triptych. 
(fig.7) A GOLDEN SECTION (COMPARE) Do you find the golden section to be a more pleasing proportion than the root rectangles? If so, perhaps you are an artist or a human being.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO
DR.
RON KNOTT UNIVERSITY OF
SURREY & HIS PAGES ON The Magic of Geometry and the Golden Section. without his help this information would have been so vague I would have never have gotten it finished
