5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By B. Noble on March 20, 2007
Format: Paperback
A really cool book for demonstrating art in geometry, specifically by means of symmetry.

Inside the cover:

"Certain shapes - in particular squares triangles and hexagons fit together to cover all the area of a sheet of paper without leaving any spaces. These are know as tessellations. Each individual shape is known as a tile.

Beautiful geometric patters can be built up with tiles, in fact this is the best way to make them. Certain types of tiles lead to more attractive patterns and these are usually the ones which have symmetry.

Perhaps you have already realised this from the title. POLY means "many" and SYMETRICS suggests symmetry. THus the most attractive geometric patterns are those which show many symmetries."

The book contains:

"12 patterns to color created by June Oliver together with the tiles from which they came

8 polysymetric tiles you can trace or copy to create your own patterns

8 tiles with their lines of symmetry drawn in

19 network design sheets for squares, hexagons, and triangles.

Suggestions, ideas and hints on how to create your own original polysymetric patterns."
