Reviews

"More than 600 excellent photographs and figures support the discussion throughout. This text represents a substantial contribution to the study of Islamic design. For any serious collection. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals." (J. McCleary, Choice, Vol. 55 (10), June, 2018) "This extensive volume by Jay Bonner on Islamic geometric patterns stands as probably one of the most comprehensive works on tessellation printed in recent years. ... This richly illustrated book, with 105 photographs and over 540 illustrations, reviews the principles and techniques associated with this art form in the Islamic world ... this book has the unexpected but dynamic quality of a knowledge-based forum where a well-informed scholar defends a particular thesis on the medium." (Jean Constant, Mathematical Reviews, April, 2018) "This is a definitive, monumental monograph on Islamic geometric ornaments. ... There are more than 600 color figures and photographs and the book is produced with great care in the quality of the acid-free paper, the printing, and the binding." (Victor V. Pambuccian, zbMATH 1379.01002, 2018) "The book is very carefully edited, especially the graphics are extremely nice and very informative. ... It is an artistic designers (hand)book for Islamic(-like) geometric patterns." (Adhemar Bultheel, European Mathematical Society, euro-math-soc.eu, March 2018)
