Dave Gives the GAME Away

So far the contents of this blog have been confined to the RESULTS of constructing Lattice Labyrinth Tessellations with only cryptic hints on how actually to DO it.

The idea is that you have to buy the book before starting on the DIY. If you HAVE bought the books and have comments or queries or just need some help, please get in touch (see address below).

On Saturday 14th. December 2013, however, at Scarthin Books, Cromford, DE4 3QF, I tried to come clean about the whole thing, with lots of pretty power point pictures and a bit of A-level algebra and geometry, free of charge. The audience struggled, and so did I. It was a lesson in the imperative necessity for step-by-step clarity when presenting new ideas.

Here’s the poster – I’d love to try again. Science Cafes, Sixth Form classes, even University Mathematics Societies would find the experience enjoyable and fruitful. Contact me via the blog system or at:




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.
