This is because, for Bezier curves, it is the smallest box that contains all control points, which is in general larger than the box that just contains the curve. This library determines the exact bounding box of the curve. In order to load this library in a LaTeX document, you need to add \usetikzlibrary{bbox} to the preamble after loading the tikz package. While this library might possibly work with TeX or ConTeXt, this has never been tested. This library loads and uses the fpu library.

## tikz-bbox – Precise determination of bounding boxes in TikZ

The built-in determination of the bounding box in TikZ is not entirely accurate. This is because, for Bezier curves, it is the smallest box that contains all control points, which is in general larger than the box that just contains the curve. This library determines the exact bounding box of the curve.
