The relationship between squares – how the development of one may have effected another, sometimes be gleaned from a careful study of the dates they were conceived. Likewise, the publishing of key design or development theories may have changed the course of development practices. The following timeline is instructive. Dates are approximate, and generally represent the time a square was conceived or a book published.
