Math art for the coffee table

My book is not about embroidery, but about patterns, patterns created with just a very few forms: regular polygons and regular stars. It is a picture book, it is a book for lying somewhere on a table. Anybody can pick it up and see the 83 original patterns, simple, yet intriguing. The pictures are page-wide, the book is 8x11.5 inch. There are 6 pages with explanatory pictures and some text. With that information, you can create your own designs.

I think it is a good gift. Especially for people who do not really like math

The title: Math Art for the coffee table: uniform star patterns.

For sale on Amazon. com. List price $19.90.
