Such crystallographic aspects lie outside my main interest, and so the ‘article’ has little of direct interest. I say ‘article’ in quotation marks, as I am not certain if this is indeed so. No bibliographic detail is give, although the indication that this is indeed so, as the pagination begins at p. 213.
Caldwell, Clare E. ‘The mind's eye.’ Journal Neurology Neurosurgery and Psychiatry, 2014 October, Volume 85, Issue 10, p.1064, Editorial Commentary (12 August 2019) Of historical tiling interest. On the Eliseevichi, Russia, tusk artefact, with an old, c. 12,000-15,000 BC tiling of hexagons. In short, this editorial commentary paves the way for G. D. Schott’s more expansive article in the same journal. A feature of Caldwell’s piece is that, bizarrely, of introducing the Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky into the topic. I see no connection or need! Kandinsky has no interest in tiling. Geometry, in a broad sense, yes, but not tiling. If he is included, why not many others? Further, the outlet seems a little odd; why a medical journal? No discussion of the historical mathematical aspect.

Chorbachi takes him, and other mystics, to task.

(3 September 2018) Quite how to best describe this work is unclear; it is not an article per se, although it is leaning towards this. Nonetheless itl thus placed here as an article. A translated description reads: Lothar Collatz: Geometric ornaments. Lecture and speeches on the occasion of the award of the honorary doctorate by the Faculty of Science on November 12, 1985, Augsburg 1986 From a reference in Nenad Trinajstić. Text is all in German, with no translation. Replete with tiling diagrams, full of interest, albeit effectively with my having only the most minimal German the text is unreadable. Pp. 2-13 are all text, and can be disregarded. To what extent this is original is unclear. Of most interest are the Cairo tiling diagrams. Attempts are made occasionally with Escher-like tessellation with minimal detail, of an eye. However, these are mostly in effect designed as ‘overlaps’, with no skill or imagination required. One exception, of a polyomino, is that of a dog,, which is quite reasonable. Pages of interest: Horsehead p. 25 with minimal detail, of an eye designed as ‘overlaps’, with no skill or imagination required Dogbone and applecore (of recent 2019 interest) p. 26 Human figure p. 27 human figures, designed as ‘overlaps’, with no skill or imagination required German street paving tile, p. 27 Cairo tiling diagram, p. 29 Dog, with minimal detail, of an eye, of a polyomino, which is quite reasonable, p. 29 Cairo tiling diagram, p. 45 Of note is the bibliography for an interesting reference of a listing of 20 entries, all academic save for one, of which this is of a recent correspondent, namely Muriel Higgins and her patchwork book!

However, as he has an interest in tiling and Escher, I do indeed see the odd diagram at least of interest. Further, the Cairo tiling appears among his works (book cover and *) and so it is possible that it has appeared in his publications elsehere. Therefore, I am more inclined to peruse such material than perhaps otherwise. Academic, of no real interest; far too advanced for me. Replete with text and equations, with only occasional diagram.

In A major collection of articles (of 1034 pages!) arising from the conference. Perhaps somewhat surprisingly tessellations, and to an extent polyhedra, are not really discussed. Instead, this is really more of his astronomical work. Chapter 11 is described as ‘Kepler as Mathematician and Physicist’.

Begins by gives a history of lifelike tessellations, pp. 17-18, of the Art Nouveau period. A listing of the ‘permissible’ isohedral tilings is given, as well as a brief history of lifelike tiling. Begins with a history, his own thoughts with illustrations of three of his works, of badgers and birds, of isohedral and anisohedral patterns. A chart of 49 ways of drawing lifelike tessellations is given, of which with correspondence with various parties (including Crompton), is shown to be wrong; it should be 47. Cromwell, Peter R. ‘Celtic Knotwork: Mathematical Art’. The Mathematical Intelligencer. Vol. 15, No. 1, 1993 pp. 36-47 (15 December 2011) The first of six articles by Cromwell, largely featuring Islamic tiling, some of more interest than others. Popular account. Of peripheral interest only (being on knots). This article (biography) mentions his interest in M. C. Escher and impossible figures. ————. ‘Kepler’s Work on Polyhedra’. ‘Years Ago’ column in The Mathematical Intelligencer. Vol. 17, No. 3, 1995 pp. 23-33 (16 December 2011) Popular account.

Cromwell, Peter R. and Elisabetta Beltrami ‘The Whirling Kites of Isfahan: Geometric Variations on a Theme’. The Mathematical Intelligencer. Volume 33, No. 3, pp. 84-93, 2011 (29 December 2011) Popular account. Of recent (September 2019) interest due to a Twitter posting of mine on a Hidezaku Nomura kite tiling, of which upon Vincent Pantaloni retweeting, gained considerable interest, expanding to a ‘Pythagorean’ tiling of kites and squares. Cromwell and Beltrami title this as ‘Whirling Kites’, based upon a tiling at the Friday Mosque, Isfahan, central Iran. This article I consider to be the best, by far, broadly accessible, with occasional advanced maths. Unfortunately, their terminology does not appear to have gained traction, as a search upon the term, and with tessellation added, nothing related shows. John Golden has studied this, with a very nice GeoGebra animation. Cromwell, an advanced mathematician, in addition to his serious work, also has an interest in many recreational aspects, and in particular on Islamic tiling, of which he has numerous papers. However, although all are of a broad popular level, and indeed of interest, I only pay lip service to his analysis. As such, I find Islamic designs broadly intractable; there is so much variation that it is overwhelming, although I retain a passing (albeit passive) interest. He also has articles such as Borromean Rings and Celtic Knotwork. His interests also extend to impossible figures and Escher although I have not seen anything from his in this field

in Two Dimensions’. From the symmetry ‘special edition’ of the journal. Obscure, although does have a small Escher-like tessellation ‘section’, p. 469, with four instances, with a quite respectable dog, and lesser in quality birds and human figures and another dog, but how does the latter tile?

Gibbs, William. ‘Paper Patterns
1 – With Metric Paper’. The first in a series of four articles of ‘paper patterns’. Note that I did not see these en masse, of which I first saw 3 and 4 in 1991, and 1 and 2 much later, in 2013. Of these, ‘Paper Patterns 3’ in particular is of most interest, this leaning towards tessellation, whilst 4 is also of interest in this regard, albeit decidedly less so. Simply stated, this (1) concerns mathematically folding A4 paper (and gives a brief history of its introduction, of Germany, in 1930s) of a variety of geometric shapes.
————. ‘Paper Patterns 2 – Solid
Shapes From Metric Paper’. Folding A4 paper to polyhedra; only of minor interest.
————. ‘Paper Patterns 3 – With
Circles’. This is by far the most interesting of the four-article series, consisting of tessellations formed by cut-out overlapping and interweaving circles. At the time I first saw this (1991), I made extensive studies of the tilings here, the best perhaps of Fig. 22, suitable for a bird.
————. ‘Paper Patterns 4 – Paper
Weaving’. Again, another article of note, albeit not strictly on tessellation, but rather weaving, in which I tried out the weavings given. Of note is the reference here to the tiling Fig. 4, as ‘Shepherds check’, which is where I almost certainly began my references to this tile as such.

Shephard. ‘Satins and Twills: An Introduction to the Geometry of Fabrics’. Mathematics Magazine. Vol. 53, No. 3 May 1980. 139-161. (13 February 1996, hard copy) From a reference in Tilings & Patterns. Somewhat of a let down as regards tiling content, the subject matter being of no real interest of the day. There is no reference to tessellation per se. However, subsequently, in more recent times, of 2019, with a recent interest in houndstooth and related fabric matters, this is once more examined in the new context. In short, Grunbaum and Shephard take the weaving community to task for a lack of rigour, and indeed the mathematical community, for a shortsighted lack of interest, noting that only papers by Lucas (1867, 1880, 1911), Shorter (1920) and Woods (1935) pass any degree of muster. As to be expected, they are considerably more rigorous, with clear definitions. Aside from clarifying standard weaving terms, they also introduce some mathematics that quickly loses me, namely of isonemal and monomenal. Of particular note is their Fig. 5, containing the ‘minimum houndstooth’, although I do not fully understand their premise, of in effect ‘failed fabrics’. Titles such as isonemal and monomenal are introduced, likely of originality on their part (Akelman, 2011, asserts so); again, I do not understand these distinctions, and indeed much of the mathematical discussion. Further, even the weave authority and computer scientist Ralph Griswold is lost as to their term ‘hanging together’! The ambiguous use of satin and sateen is also taken to task.There seems to be some fearsome mathematics underlying isonemal matters. For example, see Bohdan Zelinka’s paper ‘Symmetries of Woven Fabrics’. The various complexities and nuances here, are, at least for now (2019), are put aside. Much time could otherwise be wasted on matters largely inconsequential to my researches and understanding.

Journal of the Society of Arts, 1905, Vol. LIII, 461-477 (25 February 2013) First, as to Hankin’s series of five articles, arising from his visit to India (1892-early 1920s), and specifically of the Fatehpur Sikri and Tomb of Itimad-Ud-Daula. Incidentally, Hankin was a most interesting character, with many scientific interests. These articles differ in their scope and extent. The more substantial articles are ‘The Drawing of…’ and ‘On some Discoveries of the Methods…’. The others, all in the Mathematical Gazette, are merely one or two pages. This paper was seemingly read to a Journal of the Society of Arts meeting, dated March 17, 1905. This gives a general overview , with geometrical patterns divided into four classes: square, hexagonal, octagonal and arabesques, and of which I have issue with. Nonetheless, it is an impressive piece of writing, liberally illustrated, and largely popular, although still not yet studied as such by myself. Lewis F. Day gets a mention, p. 475.

Islamic style patterns, a ‘how it was done’,in five broad parts: Hexagonal patterns, Octagonal patterns, Geometrical Arabesques, Floral Arabesques and Decoration of domes. These differ in extent, with Geometrical Arabesques the more lengthy, whereas Floral Arabesque is a mere half page. The articles consists of an essay pp. 1-25, followed by illustrations (thirteen pages, non-paginated) thereof. Again, I have yet to do this justice. Of a broad overview, this discusses Hankin’s ‘polygons in contact’ and 'overlapping' methodology. Of particular interest is that of two diagrams of a line drawing analysis of a fused pentagon, with a Cairo tile premise if suitably joined. Both seemingly give an equilateral pentagon. Specifically, see Figure 24, a screen at the tomb of Itimad-Ud-Daula, Agra, and Figure 25, a vestibule (entrance hall) at the tomb of Akbar, Sikandra. Subsequently, Craig Kaplan ‘Islamic Star Patterns from Polygons in Contact’ (2005) and B. Lyne Bodner ''Polygons in Contact' Grid Method for Recreating a Decagonal Star Polygon Design’ has followed up on his methodology.

Begins with a brief discussion on the print, with references to the above polyhedra, and also of the planaria, and then more extensively Hart’s own work in the field, concentrating on the polyhedral aspect per se. For no particular reason, planaria, and more specifically of the creatures themselves, has attracted my attention at odd intervals, with the latest of May 2019, on the occasion of finding new detail on the print (by Sherry Buchsbaum in a blog reply). Hence my more circumspect appraisal of Hart’s piece, in the search for anything of interest, given that this print is not too frequently commonly discussed in the literature. Hart, in general, is more concerned with his special interest, rather than planaria. However, he does indeed make one interesting unconnected point in the introduction, commenting on none of Escher's’ trademarks’ being here, but is rather a portrayal of a plausible, albeit unfamiliar, scene. Simply stated nothing per se new on planaria.

Upon looking on the web for him, I found various papers, with this, containing the background to Escher’s ‘Man with Cuboid’ print, of which the background, with the von Hippel connection, was unknown to me. Page 840 titles this as ‘The Thinker’. For more on von Hippel, see the article by Markus Zahn.

Mackay, Alan L [15] ‘Extensions of space group theory’ As regards Mackay and his articles, most of these are of an academic title, and so are mostly hard, if not impossible to obtain. However, as of 6 September 2016, I found a website making a substantial proportion of his many papers and others available, as a pdf. These are described as: (i) scientific publications, (ii) miscellaneous publications, (iii) Anecdotal Evidence" columns from "The Sciences" , (iv)indirect material, (v) book reviews, (vi) unpublished papers etc http://met.iisc.ernet.in/~lord/webfiles/Alan/Alanpapers.html However, despite being warmly welcomed, these are mostly of limited use and interest, as to be expected given the source, as these are highly academic, way beyond my understanding, not to mention of diverging specialties. However, on occasion, there are indeed crossovers with tiling, and of which some, with diagrams, are broadly followable; for instance, Penrose and pentagon tilings feature strongly. To add all these available listing here, of about 250 available papers seems somewhat over officious, given the lack of need. Therefore, I here thus list just those of interest, and where quoted in tiling matters, such as with Grünbaum. Incidentally, Grünbaum lists seven articles of his, all of which I now have.

MacMahon refers to ‘contact system of assemblages’, of which this is presumed to tessellate. the text in general is too difficult for me to follow.

Maletsky, Evan, M. Activities: ‘Designs with Tessellations’.
Note that the article featured in a ‘special edition’ on tessellations, specifically concerning three Escher-inspired tessellation articles; (i) Ernest R. Ranucci, ‘Master of Tessellations M.C. Escher;’ (ii) Joseph L. Teeters ‘How to draw tessellations of the Escher Type’, and (iii) Evan M. Maletsky ‘Activities: Designs with Tessellations’. The article is most brief indeed, of just four pages padded by large scale diagrams and shows a typical teacher attempt at the Escher-like aspect, with two tessellations showing no understanding of the matter, with little more than detail added to a tile. This also shows an analysis of Escher's flying fish tessellation. Admittedly, the article appears slanted to children, but it should have been better. This appears to be his only attempt at Escher-like tessellations, as upon a web search (October 2017), there is no other apparent works by him in this field. Maletsky at least speaks with authority, a maths (and physics) teacher, with a NCTA lifetime achievement award of 2009.

O’Keefe, M. and B. G. Hyde. ‘Plane Nets in Crystal Chemistry’. Philosophical Transactions Royal Society London. Series A, 295 1980, 553-618 (8 March 2013) From a reference in Tilings and Patterns. A very nice paper indeed in a generalized sense, although of course, given the academic nature, much is beyond my understanding. Of particular note is two instances of the Cairo tiling, although not stated as such: P. 557, in relation to use in Mathematical Models by Cundy and Rollett and New Mathematical Pastimes by MacMahon. P. 567, a diagram, where O’Keefe and Hyde specifically name it after MacMahon, with ‘MacMahon’s net’. As such this paper seemingly marks the introduction of the term ‘MacMahon’s Net’ for the Cairo tiling, and was used again by them in their 1996 paper, but this time in addition with the Cairo association. However, this is very much an ‘unofficial’ description. Upon correspondence (2012) with him: I suspect I got ‘Cairo tiling’ from Martin Gardner who wrote several articles on pentagon tilings. He is very reliable. As to ‘MacMahon's net’, I got the MacMahon reference from Cundy & Rollet….We are mainly interested in tilings on account of the nets (graphs) they carry. Possibly, and plausibly, this by MacMahon, of 1921, was the earliest known representation, and so in a sense, it was indeed broadly justified, even though by 1980 the ‘Cairo tiling’ term was coming into popular use, although if so, it is now been left behind by my subsequent researches. Curiously, the term is used on the Cairo pentagonal tiling Wikipedia page. However, the page leaves much to be desired, including this designation. Toshikazu Sunada has also used this term. However, I do not like this at all; it seems a somewhat artificial, additional naming, and so is unnecessary. Better would simply to have credited MacMahon as the first known instance (at the time) but without naming it after him. Also see a later paper, of 1996. Biographical details: Michael O’Keefe (1942-) and Bruce Godfrey Hyde (1925-2014) are two prominent people in science, and leading lights in their fields, namely physics and solid state chemistry respectively. In this regard, both have an interest in tilings, of which the paper addresses. Although of an intended academic audience, the paper is still nonetheless has much popular interest. Aside from the Cairo tiling, there are some most interesting simple, but aesthetic tilings, deserving of study.

related subject matter without incurring the epithet ‘imitator, or
‘derivative’, or even plagiarist’. Absurd. So every painter copies from caveman
art? Every mathematician copies from Euclid? Every artist is copying Escher? No,

Teeters, Joseph L. ‘How to Draw Tessellations of the Escher
Type’. Note that the article featured in a ‘special edition’ on tessellations, specifically concerning three Escher-inspired tessellation articles; (i) Ernest R. Ranucci, ‘Master of Tessellations M.C. Escher;’ (ii) Joseph L. Teeters ‘How to draw tessellations of the Escher Type’, and (iii) Evan M. Maletsky ‘Activities: Designs with Tessellations’. That by Maletsky is particularly excruciating. Note that this article was studied extensively of the day. In short, Teeters purports to set out one of his procedures for drawing Escher-like tessellations, with the subheading ‘a short, clear discussion showing how you or your students can create tessellation art’. If only! It’s not short, it’s not clear, and at the procedure is essentially unfathomable, or at least as given! The time I spent unravelling this unholy tangle was wholly disproportionate as to worth. As such, it is next to useless as a general procedure, as it applies to a specific tiling, of a staggered isosceles triangle, of which Teeters would better have presented as such without such convolutions. Teeters illustrates the article with three of his works, all oddly not captioned: Unicyclist, St. Bernard Dog and a Red Indian, of which only one (St Bernard) is referenced with a figure number, albeit discussed only in passing. Admittedly, all three are of interest as rare examples of such motifs. All three are of the same broad level of quality, neither particularly good nor bad. I believe that at the time of seeing they were one of the few non Escher-like instances available, and so assumed a position of greater status by default than they deserved.

Of interest mainly due to the Schattsneider collaboration, although this is limited to comments on the contents of the paper only. Quite why Schattsneider, with a primarily tiling and Escher interest chose to ‘promote’ this artist and this piece in particular is unclear; his work is undeserving, in both extent and quality. Although of a geometric nature, these are not inherently of tiling or Escher-like in the true sense. His one loosely defined tessellation artwork ‘Salmon Spirits’, is nothing special, despite a first mention in her 2008 Leeuwarden paper. Further, upon looking for him on the web, on a biography he lists the influences of three artists without even mentioning Escher!

Perhaps of most note is a reference to Lothar Collatz’s‘ use, of which I was unfamiliar with, and followed up. In general, a pleasing read. Has an extensive bibliography, of 151 references! Trinajstić, was a new name to me.

in Italy: The Trail Back’. In Coxeter, et al, Eds. Ver Sacrum. 1899. (4 November 2013) A collection of articles of the Art Nouveau period; quite where to categorise this is uncertain, as book or articles. A whole years’ worth of articles of 1899 is posted on-line, and although not in any way a mathematics book nonetheless contains Moser’s historic first true life-like tessellation, of fish, and of others of less importance, and so is of significance in that regard. On the off chance that there might be other instances from other contributors, I examined every page, but to no avail.
Vighi, Paola. ‘L’uso di mediatori artistici e informatici per l’insegnamento della Geometria’ Riv. Mat Univ. Parma 6 3 (2000) 183-197. (In Italian) (29 March 2016) An abstract in English which gives a meaning to this states: This work was inspired by a periodic drawing of M. C. Escher, based on a pentagonal tessellation. First we have reconstructed the basic pentagon by means of the CABRI software, then we have identified the basic grid and link from which the drawing derives. It is recognized that it falls under the C4 type in the 17-group classification of patterns design. This allows to treat the issue of geometry and its teaching, providing suggestions of pedagogical relevance. Finally we deal with the theme of the plane covering by pentagons and its fundamental points are illustrated. Ostensibly on pentagons. Has many instances of the Cairo tiling (although not stated as such) pp. 185-187, 193. Has an interesting pentagonal paving photo on p. 194.
Villiers, Michael D. ‘An Investigation of Some Properties of
the General Haag Polygon’. Contains a discussion of the Haag hexagon, of which I believe I have shown (upon looking at the paper in depth on the 13 March 2015) that Escher did indeed use this to at least E21 (Running Man), of which De Villiers himself, and John Rigby, who has done some work on this, left open-ended.

From Wikipedia: Emanuel Anthony Posselt (1858–1921) was an authority on Jacquard looms and weaving. His book on the Jacquard machine is considered to be a classic….

Delightful! Popular essay on Escher by Wilkie with many interesting sub tales, much of which is new. Perhaps of most note concerns the background to the Mick Jagger-Escher correspondence.

Wood, Donald G. ‘Space Enclosure Systems’. Cairo tiling interest, from a
footnote in Wood makes a curious observation as regards tilings with equal length sides, with the Cairo tiling being one of five such instances; as such, I do not recall seeing this simple observation elsewhere. Much of his work here, and elsewhere in the book, is in regards to prisms.

Yazar, Tuğral. ‘Revisting Parquet Deformations from a
computational perspective: A novel method for design and analysis’. Broadly, written from an architecture viewpoint. Tuğral, who I have corresponded with previously on parquet deformations, and has studied these extensively, and here presents his (first?) paper on them. However, I don’t quite know what to make of this, as the writing and explanations are somewhat technical. It is essentially a study of Huff student-inspired works and in particular ‘Trifoliate’ by Glen Paris. Other Huff-related works include ‘Crossover’, by Richard Long and ‘I at the Center’ by David Oleson. Further, his own students works are included as well. Extensive use is made of Grasshopper, much beyond my understanding, or indeed interest, as good as it may be in the right hands. Mentions of myself p. 254 and in the acknowledgements, p. 265. Gives a good bibliography, although many of the references are peripheral.

Upon looking on the web for him, I found various papers, with this, containing the background to Escher’s ‘Man with Cuboid’ print, of which the background, with the von Hippel connection, was unknown to me. Page 798 titles this as ‘The Thinker’. For more on von Hippel, see the article by Frank N. von Hippel.

However, I have no plans to re-read or adopt the methodology.
