taking note of the subtle things

"The Golden Ratio is a proportion of 1 to 1.618, which is a nonstandard size, which is a bit of a pain to print [a book in], but it's a naturally pleasing proportion that's found in a lot of nature," Schott says. "It's these really subtle things that no one cares about. They make such a difference." (source)
So true!
