Designed by Tim Parsons and Jessica Charleswort and sold by Old Co., the Golden Section Finder is a wallet-sized piece of semi-transparent acrylic that will help you find the perfect ratio for your photos.

The golden section is a number found regularly when calculating the ratio between the dimensions of natural and geometric forms. Artists, designers and architects have used it as a means of defining beauty theoretically rather than intuitively. Use it in your surroundings as a lens through which to find "proportional perfection."
