Designing tessellations : the secrets of interlocking patterns

Author: Jinny Beyer
Publisher: Lincolnwood, IL : Contemporary Books, ©1999.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Jinny Beyer deftly interweaves inspiration and technique to create a guide to tessellations, amazing motifs, that interlock perfectly to flow across a surface. Learn the mystery of how complex designs are achieved and how thousands of patterns are possible by manipulating the simplest of shapes.
