To Charles Watkins and the List,

When I still held out some hope of making sense of Ada,* I found two books
that were helpful on the understanding of gnomon concept:

Sundials: History, Theory, and Practice by René R. J. Rohr and
Gnomon: From Pharaohs to Fractals by Midhat J. Gazale

Carolyn

* there is an L-shaped aspect to the gnomon and the word appears in some of
Van's theoretical writings.
