The Surface Plane
By Newman, Rochelle and Boles, Martha
This book continues the exploration of two dimensions began in Universal Patterns. In the first chapter, readers are introduced to the notion of the grid and its function. The second chapter describes the symmetry operations of the point, line, and plane groups. Symmetry becomes the underlying concept that threads through the remaining chapters on Circles, Tilings, and Fractals. The last chapter, the Pliable Plane, is the lead into three dimensions.
