Lattice Labyrinth Tessellations
by Mitchell, David

Children and adults love pattern. Fascination with Escher and with the Alhambra and other patterns lead to intrigue into making them, understanding them and inventing them. Now in Tarquin's long tradition of pattern books that link art and mathematics, comes a new title. Lattice Labyrinth Tessellations, an exciting, fertile, yet almost unexplored Flatland situated in the gulf between Art and Mathematics.The astonishing and elegant designs revealed in this very short and almost elementary book are simple to make and beautiful to contemplate, yet are unmentioned in the textbooks and unknown to designers and architects, following in the footsteps of the celebrated Dutch graphic designer Maurits Escher. This is a guided workbook that will show you how to construct an unbounded range of potentially intricate patterns like those on the front cover. Many of these designs - in fact an infinite number - can be constructed, step-by-step following straightforward rules.
