Books on framebuilding/frame geometry

Any suggestions on a book/s that goes over the basics of framebuilding and frame geometries? I'm an info-seeking, self-educating type and am hungry to know more on the subjects. I'm not looking to get into framebuilding, just to know more about the subject purely for my own personal enjoyment. I would appreciate any replies. Thanks.
