Description
Part mathematical exploration, part craft project, and ultimately a collection of fascinating visual sculptures, this book and craft kit takes the stunning geometric art of M.C. Escher a step beyond the originals. Although he insisted he was not a mathematician, the interlocking patterns created by the Dutch artist have been explored by real mathematicians like Doris Schattschneider and designers like Wallace Walker. Together they have wrapped beautifully printed reproductions of Escher's work around a series of 3-D paper models, including six different solids (tetrahedron, octahedron, icosahedron, cube, dodecahedron, and cuboctahedron) and a series of 11 twisting shapes called kaleidocycles, which rotate in on themselves in an endless cycle. Presenting different faces with each turn, these kaleidocycles reveal the true complexities of Escher's art.
