La historia jamás contada de los misteriosos códigos y símbolos encontrados en las herramientas antiguas de cualquier oficio Códigos y símbolos de las herramientas europeas es la historia jamás contada de los misteriosos códigos y símbolos encontrados en las herramientas antiguas de cualquier oficio, desde el Imperio Romano hasta el siglo XIX. Comprende 237 ilustraciones de manuscritos antiguos y de herramientas con sus símbolos ocultos. ¿Por qué tantos instrumentos contienen símbolos como estrellas, cruces, espirales y corazones? ¿Por qué las sierras, martillos, reglas y cinceles tienen estampado el compás y la escuadra? ¿Por qué hay otras herramientas grabadas con letras, números, signos extraños como en numeral 4 con un tallo largo y dos que lo cruzan? ¿Por qué tantos utensilios de oficios no relacionados presentan un corazón, o el mismo patrón exacto de una espina de pescado, e incluso las letras “IHS” o “IOS”? Para intentar responder a estas preguntas debemos viajar atrás en el tiempo y estudiar, no solo el contexto histórico en el que fueron fabricados, sino también a los hombres y mujeres que los hicieron con sus propias manos y sus corazones. Este estudio es la historia de esas personas que construyeron catedrales y casas, puentes y carreteras, monumentos y sueños.
