This book encompasses a wide range of mathematical concepts relating to regularly repeating surface decoration from basic principles of symmetry to more complex issues of graph theory, group theory and topology. It presents a comprehensive means of classifying and constructing patterns and tilings. The classification of designs is investigated and discussed forming a broad basis upon which designers may build their own ideas. A wide range of original illustrative material is included. In a complex area previously best understood by mathematicians and crystallographers, the author develops and applies mathematical thinking to the context of regularly repeating surface-pattern design in a manner accessible to artists and designers. Design construction is covered from first principles through to methods appropriate for adaptation to large-scale screen-printing production. The book extends mathematical thinking beyond symmetry group classification. New ideas are developed involving motif orientation and positioning, including reference to a crystal structure, leading on to the classification and construction of discrete patterns and isohedral tilings. Designed to broaden the scope of surface-pattern designers by increasing their knowledge in otherwise impenetrable theory of geometry this 'designer friendly' book serves as a manual for all types of surface design including textiles, wallpapers and wrapping paper. It will also be of value to crystallographers, mathematicians and architects. Published in association with The Textile Institute
