Sample – Diamond Family


 Above is a small area of Diamond (13,1) with its rather dragon-like supertiles; I seem to have cracked the construction of all (a,1) cases. I find this one particularly attractive – or is it just that the colour choice is uncharacteristically felicitous? At any rate, I’ve extended it over the area of a giftwrap sheet and having ordered some from digital printers Spoonflower , which sold quickly, if at a thumping loss, at Scarthin Books, we’ve ordered a long lithographic print-run which can be sold at around £1.50 a sheet. It’s lovely.


About davescarthin

After a brief academic and local government career, long an independent bookseller/publisher at Scarthin Books, Cromford, Derbyshire, UK. An antiquarian bookseller in two senses, now also has time to be an annuated independent post-doc, developing the long dormant topic of lattice labyrinth tessellations - both a mathematical recreation and a source of compelling practical tiling/paving and textile designs. Presenting a paper and experiencing so many others at Bridges Seoul 2014 Mathart conference was a great treat, as was the MathsJam Annual Conference in November 2016. I'm building up to a more academic journal paper and trying hard to find practical outlets in graphic design and landscape architecture. An 8 ft square tiling design was part of the Wirksworth Festival Art and Architecture Trail 2016, followed by a triangles design in 2017. I love giving illustrated talks, tailored to the audience. Get in touch to commission or to collaborate.
