some of the hyperbolic plane illustrations from the Symmetries of Things

These illustrations are from the first edition of The Symmetries of Things, written with John Conway and Heidi Burgiel. Back in the day, kids, I didn’t have a way to actually draw in the computer — so all of these designs had to be built programmatically. The feet are all the same shape and size in the actual hyperbolic plane, the shape of my foot.
