Akiyama, Shigeki. ‘A Note on Aperiodic Ammann Tiles’. Discrete & Computational Geometry (2012) 48: pp. 702-710. (2 November 2012)

Largely of an academic nature throughout, of which although there are plenty of largely accessible diagrams, the tone of the paper is way beyond me. Of no practical use.

Albright, Thomas. ‘Visuals-Escher’. Rolling Stone. 52. p. 40, February 21, 1970 (28 March 2011)

An (early US) in-depth essay on Escher, although of a single page of the magazine, in broadsheet format. Various prints, too numerous to list, are discussed, although these is nothing here in the way of originality. Illustrated with three prints Liberation, Self Portrait and Waterfall.

Alvarez, Josefina and Christina Varsavsky. ‘Tilings’. Function Volume 28 Part 4 pp. 94-102, August 2004. (15 January 2015)

On convex pentagons, among other tilings. As an aside, this (Australian) journal only came to my attention to as late as 15 January 2015, it having begun as far back in 1977!

 

Ammann, Robert, Branko Grünbaum and G. C. Shephard. ‘Aperiodic Tiles’. Discrete & Computational Geometry 8: pp. 1-25 1992 (25 May 2012)

Academic, although written in a largely popular manner. I strongly suspect that although Ammann fronts this (having discovered the tile in question), the writing is essentially from Grünbaum and Shephard. Essentially of a ‘stepped’ tile, with an elliptical ‘key’. As such, not of any real interest.

N.B. The chronology discrepancy between date of publication and owning is explained by the journal appearing before its stated date.

Escher’s prints in Life’s rich patterns’, Circle Limit IV and a fragment of Metamorphosis shown p 28. No mention of Escher beyond the caption! A lifelike Tesselation tutorial in ‘Art by numbers’p.30. Nothing of any great significance here, pitched at a child level.

From Andrew Crompton’s reference in his article Lifelike Tessellations; only a single page is of interest this is the only tessellation, and even this is not clearly of the premise. The artist is apparently Nellie Syrett. Various authors, of a collection of writings.

A Canadian pedagogy magazine pitched at school age children. Varied content as regards Escher, such as analysis of how Escher created his tessellations and a series of tutorials of how to create Escher-like tessellations, not always good advice. Not of any significance.

From a reference in a letter of Cornelius van. Roosevelt in The New York Times. A speculative purchase resulting in a major disappointment! Given the title of the journal, I was under the impression there was going to be an worthy article on Escher, but of which in a sense there is an article, but it cannot be described as worthy - all it does is repeat select text and illustrations from The Graphic Work!. There is nothing in the remotest sense ‘original’! Prints include Hand with Reflecting Globe, Puddle, Reptiles, Metamorphosis Magic Mirror, Relativity, Descending ascending Belvedere, Waterfall.

Bagina, O. ‘Tiling the Plane with Congruent Equilateral Convex Pentagons’. Journal of Combinatorial Theory Series A., pp. 221-232 (February 2012)

Academic. Something of a let down, in that the text is of a technical nature; I though this might have been illustrated with Cairo-like tiles, or at least of pentagons, but there’s not a single tiling diagram per se at all!

Not paginated. Of note is my contribution to this, of the fish tessellation on back cover and two works inside; ‘Nested Fish’ again, and ‘Interflocking Birds’ (Bellos description). Of note is Harris parquet deformation (with likely Bellos title) ‘De-four-mation’, of four non-periodic tilings positioned in a corner, which morph left to right and top and bottom. Beat that if you can!

Bennett, Curtis D. ‘A Paradoxical View of Escher’s Angels and Devils’. The Mathematical Intelligencer , pp. 39-46 (24 November 2011)

The title indicates a likely popular article, but in actuality it’s of an advanced nature; studying the premise of hyperbolic geometry; decidedly obtuse, far too difficult for me.

Boots, Barry and Narushige Shiode. ‘Recursive Voronoi Diagrams’. Environment and Planning B Planning and Design 2003, Vol. 30 pp. 113-124.

Academic. Found upon a search for tessellation in Environment and Planning archive. On Voronoi diagrams, of no practical use.

 

Bollabas, Bela. ‘Filling the Plane with Congruent Convex Hexagons Without Overlapping’. Tudomanyegyetem Annlaes Sectio Mathematica 1963, pp. 117-123 (19 April 2015)

From a reference in Schattsneider’s pentagon ‘Tiling the Plane with Congruent Pentagons’ article, but pentagons are not mentioned by Bollabas! Interesting in its own right, albeit academic, with ‘understandable’ diagrams.

Boule, François. ‘Variations Autour D-’un Pavage Semi Regulier’ (in French). No bibliographic detail is given; could be taken from a book, as it begins at page 15. (18 December 2012)

Paper is titled as ‘François Boule, Dijon, 2001’

Interesting in many ways: 1. It uses the term ‘semi regular’ as used elsewhere. 2. It gives an interesting ‘Saigon paving’. 3. Some fearsome Cairo mathematics!

Broos, C. ‘M. C. Escher’. In Holland-a century of form and colour. Netherlands National Tourist Office. No date, but I have a 1963 reference for this (17 January 2015)

A minor ‘article’ (apparently not previously referenced) on Escher in the context of Dutch painters of the 20th century in a booklet in association with the Netherlands National Tourist Office. This uses (‘pp. 22-23’) three of Escher’s prints: Day and Night, Other World, Waterfall, with a general commentary on Escher, albeit not on the works above, and what text there is most brief and of no new insight.

Presumably ‘C. Broos’ is he same person as C. H. A. Broos as the author in an article in The World of M. C. Escher, immediately above. The booklet, of 32 pages, but without an introduction, contents or pagination, does give brief details as to Broos’s background not available above; he was curator of modern art, Municipal Museum, The Hague.

Use of Escher’s plane tilings, namely 43 (shells and starfish), 55 (fish), 70 (butterfly), 78 (unicorn), and Birds in Space, as crystallographic principles. 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.

Of note is the reference to the well-known eight-pointed star and pointed cross tiling, p. 759, in which this is described by Bakhtiar mystically, as ‘The Breath of The Compassionate’, and of which the term seems to have spread. Chorbachi takes him, and other mystics, to task. This reference only came to light in September 2017, upon research on the star and cross tiling in connection with a variation by Muriel Higgins; I had forgotten the reference!

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.

Liberally illustrated with numerous tiles and tilings, of which prominent is a Cairo type tiling, pp. 371, 374, P5B1, and a Kreugel pentagon Diagram 5a, 4. Full of interest that requires studying. Also note a much later 1978 paper by Delone, Dolbilin, and Shtogrin, which uses most of the diagrams here.

Many instances of Cairo tiling, pp. 115-116, 120, 127, 129, 134, 136 (skew), 137. Also has many interesting diagrams. Being in Russian, one cannot even guess as to the text, and so I only printed out the diagrams, save for the first page. also see earlier 1959 article by Delone by himself, with this apparently based on that.

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?

As inspired by Escher's own ribbon patterns. Largely of an academic nature, really only of interest per se in a personal sense (to Escher), although obviously Gethner et al seem enamoured by the premise.

Gibbs, William. ‘Paper Patterns 1 – With Metric Paper’. Mathematics in School. March 1990 pp. 24-28 (22 February 2013)

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’. Mathematics in School. May 1990, pp.2-4 (22 February 2013)

Folding A4 paper to polyhedra; only of minor interest.

 

————. ‘Paper Patterns 3 – With Circles’. Mathematics in School. September 1990, pp. 2-8 (22 February 2013)

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’. Mathematics in School. November 1990, pp.16-19 (22 February 2013)

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.

Note that from 1998 to 1998 Andrew Glassner, a computer scientist, with a strong interest in graphics, had a column in IEEE in which he discussed a variety of subjects from a graphic viewpoint, some of which are direct interest, being of a tiling nature as well as others of a more peripheral nature. These articles I have long known about, possibly from Craig Kaplan’s bibliography in his thesis, of which previously they were unavailable to me (save for purchasing from the IEEE site). Only of today have I found these freely available on his website. As such, in a broad sense there is much of interest here, although for the sake of brevity I list here only those that are of the most significant.

Haag, F. ‘Die regelmässigen Planteilungen’. Zeitschrift fur Kristallographie 49 (1911): 360-369.

(24 April 2012)

Although this has what can be interpreted as ‘skewed Cairos’, there is not a standard Cairo tile here. Note that this article was the first of three by Haag on a listing of B.G. Escher as given to M. C. Escher (as documented in Visions…, p. 357).

 

 ————. ‘Die regelmässigen Planteilungen und Punktsysteme’. Zeitschrift fur Kristallographie 58 (1923): 478-488. (24 April 2012)

This is the article Doris Schattschneider quoted me as a Cairo tiling, fig 13, p. 487 in her tiling listserver response to my posting. However, after a translation was obtained, this is not so, Haag is referring to a quadrilateral tile, and not a pentagon; the pentagon ‘appears’ incidentally, upon a misinterpretation of the diagram. Note that this article was the second of three by Haag on a listing of B.G. Escher as given to M. C. Escher (as documented in Visions…, p. 357).

Finding any hidden gems is disproportionate as to the time required to examine his lengthy writings, not that there is anything wrong with that. Of note is a preoccupation with counterchange, of which he complied a short but significant reference.

As such, I believe this first came to my attention as a result of an article on Escher in Scientific American ‘Sources of Ambiguity in the Prints of Maurits C. Escher’, by Marianne Teuber, of which on p. 94 she quotes this reference. Consequently, I thus apparently followed up on this (ordered from the British library). However, tessellation wise, of figure and ground, this is a relative disappointment. As such, it is inconsequential. Rubin’s face-vase is discussed/illustrated, pp. 410-415, but what it contains is not of practical use.

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.

Hofstadter, Douglas R. 'Parquet deformations: patterns of tiles that shift gradually in one dimension’. Metamagical Themas in Scientific American (July 1983): 12-18.

The importance of this article can hardly be overstated. This is the first popular account of parquet deformations, with William Huff’s student-inspired works, of which Hofstadter does it full justice, with 12 stunning examples. And the titles are most amusing too! To pick a favourite is invidious. However, if pressed ‘Fylfot Flipflop’. Of note is that these are all linear. Absolutely delightful!

This essentially repeats Hofstader’s original July 1983 column in Scientific American (his last), with extra, minor text, but also, more importantly, a ‘post scriptum’, in which a parquet deformation of David Olseon’s ‘I at the Center’ is illustrated and discussed, and much praised.

Of note is that this shows a Moore pentagon in a regular hexagon, with the tiling implied? However, I am not certain; Langford shows other non-tiling polygons, such a regular pentagon. No references are given in the article; it is unclear if Langford believes these are all his own.

Nonetheless, it is indeed gratifying in that these articles can at least be put aside knowing that there is nothing of importance that I may be missing out on.

Mackay, Alan L [15] ‘Extensions of space group theory’ Acta Cryst., 10, 543-8, 1957. (6 September 2016)

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.

From a Garcia reference in NMP. As received from George Andrews. Of note is that MacMahon refers to a ‘haystack’, meaning a Cairo tile, p. 573, after fig. 13, and gives the construction, as in Pastimes. This term is also interestingly used by him in Pastimes (1921). W. P. D. MacMahon (1925) also uses this word in ‘The theory of closed repeating polygons…’ . So who devised it?!

As is typical of MacMahon, his favoured method of showing tessellations is of a single diagram, notably pp. 576-577, rather than, as he puts it, ‘assemblages’. p.577 also has tiles derived from the Cairo tilings.

 

MacMahon, P. A. and W. P. D. MacMahon. ‘The Design of Repeating Patterns’. Part I. N.B. There is no Part II) Proceedings of the Royal Society A. London 101 (1922), 80-94 (30 April 2012)

From a Garcia reference in NMP . The article is mostly of text, with the only diagrams on p. 89. Although the text is not particularly advanced, The lack of diagrams is a major hindrance to understanding the text. Indeed, so much so that I have not truly studied this paper.

 

MacMahon, W. P. D. ‘The theory of closed repeating polygons in Euclidean space of two dimensions’. Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society (2) 23 (1925) 75-93 (30 April 2012)

From a Garcia reference in NMP. Of note is that (WPD) MacMahon refers to a ‘haystack’, meaning a Cairo tile, p. 89, after fig. 6, although this is not shown. As this term is also used in New Mathematical Pastimes, by PA, and so which of the MacMahons devised this is unclear.

This is noteworthy on account that although a tiling paper, no tilings are actually shown! Instead, single diagrams are shown, with the presumption of a tiling. 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.

 

Note that I have many other MacMahon papers from Garcia’s bibliography, but these are of an academic nature of no practical use, and so rather than a pointless listing are not shown here.  He particularly favoured Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society. Also see others from Garcia reference.

Obrębski and R. Tarczewski (eds.) 1-4 (25 April 2016, but seen earlier)

Maletsky, Evan, M. Activities: ‘Designs with Tessellations’. The Mathematics Teacher, April 1974, Volume 67, Number 4, 335-338 and continued 360. (Confusingly, inside the book this is also titled as ‘Mathematics Teacher’ (first saw May 1988, hard copy of magazine of 18 June 2011, and individual articles 18 February 2013)

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.

Broadly philosophical speculations by Osborn on the reducing numbers of possible future life-like tessellation. This is noteworthy for the ridiculous statement by Osborn ‘…Escher foreclosed forever the possibility of any subsequent artist employing this user friendly geometry for the Amphographic depiction of any even remotely 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, no, no; people build on cavemen, build on Euclid, and build on Escher, not plagiarising.

I have many other articles by Ranucci of no special importance to me (being non-tessellation and polyhedra), and so for this reason they are not listed in any great detail here in the main listing, instead I simply list the titles: Jungle-Gym Geometry, Isosceles, Permutation Patterns, On the Occasional Incompatibility of Algebra and Geometry, Of Shoes-and Ships-And Sealing Wax-of Barber Poles and Things, Tantalizing ternary, applications.

Of fundamental importance concerning tiling with pentagons, full of interest, and all largely accessible. ‘Cairo tiling’ as a term is mentioned, as an Archimedean dual, p. 30, with three references: to likely Gardner’s article (as Macmillan does not get a mention in the bibliography, but it could be Dunn), Coxeter’s cover, and Escher’s usage of the tiling.

 

————. ‘The Plane Symmetry Groups: Their Recognition and Notation’. American. Mathematical. Monthly June-July 1978. 439-450. (3 October 1996)

————. ‘Will it Tile? Try the Conway Criterion!’ Mathematics Magazine. 53, No. 4, 224-233. 1980 (13 February 1996)

As such, of limited interest as regards tessellation. This borders on the popular and academic, and in relation to tessellation per se is of little value.

 

————. ‘The Pólya-Escher Connection’. Mathematics Magazine Vol. 60, No. 5. (Dec. 1987) 292-298 (17 March 2010)

Contains a previously unpublished page from Escher's sketchbook, which is of some significance, in that it shows how Escher formed his Eagle motif (PD 17), by fusing two tiles. This formation had previously escaped me. This is all the more galling, in that the information was available from as far back as 1987 with this article, but it took me 23 years to find it! Much of the material here later appears in Visions. The background to the creation of the Eagle motif is discussed in Visions, p. 289, of which I was aware of previously, but here the fusing is not mentioned, and so I couldn’t understand Schattsneider’s belief at the time as to the accreditation. This article reveals it.

————. ‘Lessons in Duality and Symmetry from M. C. Escher’. Bridges Leeuwarden, 2008 1-8 (August 2008)

Likely one of the lesser articles of interest from Schattsneider; there is nothing really new or insightful here. Of interest is a reference, pp.7-8 to Dylan Thomas and his ‘Coast Salish’ tessellation artwork, although quite why Schattsneider chose to promote this is unclear; his work is undeserving, in both extent and quality. However, they seem to have some kind of association or friendship; Schattsneider comments again on his work in a 2011 paper by him. ‘Artist profile Dylan Thomas: Coast Salish artist’. Journal of the Mathematics and the Arts. Vol. 5, No. 4, December 2011, 199-211.

Teeters, Joseph L. ‘How to Draw Tessellations of the Escher Type’. The Mathematics Teacher, April 1974, Volume 67, Number 4, 307-310. (Confusingly, inside the book this is also titled as ‘Mathematics Teacher’ (18 June 2011) First saw 14 May 1988

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.

Teuber, Marianne L. 'Sources of Ambiguity in the Prints of Maurits C. Escher.' The fascinating graphic inventions of the late Dutch artist reflect a strong mathematical and crystallographic influence. Their original inspiration, however, came from experiments on visual perception. Scientific American 231 No. 1 (July 1974): 90-104. (First saw, or at least recorded, 22 September 1987)

This article has generated considerable discussion, and of which in particular George Escher rebuts. Be that as it may, from Teuber’s premise, she quotes some psychology articles that supposedly Influenced Escher of which I now examine. She quotes, pp. 94 and 98:

During the same period (1936-1938) Escher also became aware of an experimental study by Harrower, who in April 1936, published an article ‘Some Factors determining Figure Ground Articulation in the British Journal of Psychology’.

and

Escher must have known von Fieandt’s experiments.

Both assertions, as far as I am aware, are unproven.

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!

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.

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.
