This is the definitive work on the generation of and classification of geometric tiling patterns. With a strong emphasis on the geometry, and extensive text covering the underlying mathematics, this work references sources as diverse as crystallography, virology, art, philosophy and quilting.
As much a science text book as a survey of possible patterns this is a diverse, complex and thorough study of the mathemetics and form of repeat pattern generation, and the resulting patterns themselves.
Illustrations: Contains over 500 illustrations and repeats and 100 mathematical tables.
