Abstract:

Here is a lucid, thoughtful guide to understanding the structure and organization of three-dimensional space. In 250 captioned drawings this book brilliantly communicates the beauty and geometry of polyhedra. Beginning with polygons and tessellations, it proceeds in a logical sequence to finite polyhedra, dual polyhedra, space filling, and open packings. Important considerations of symmetry, periodic and uniform patterns, and regular and semi-regular forms are presented. Because the understanding of polyhedra is enhanced by the manipulation of models, a chapter of both two- and three-dimensional constructions is included.
