A Christmas Card from Dave at Lattice Labyrinths and Scarthin Books

I wish all visitors to this blog a Merry Christmas and a Peaceful New Year.

Christmas Card 2015

The tessellation is Trefoil Lattice Labyrinth (25,12) with Snowdon seen from Crib Goch in the background. The occasion was a classic traverse of The Snowdon Horseshoe in Alpine conditions by a party from Birmingham University Wayfarers Society. At sunset, while we sheltered beneath a little crag below Llewedd, Ekrem Gacic, from Sarajevo, brewed a “Turkish” coffee which we sipped through a sugar lump from a tiny cup.

The cardboard is being unloaded for recycling at the highly-organised, indispensable Peak Waste near Kniveton, Derbyshire. The cycle, just visible (in fact a tandem) was NOT recycled.

 The Lattice Labyrinths workbook  is available from the publisher or you-know-who , or from a good independent bookshop or via Google.


About davescarthin

After terminating academic and local government careers, long an independent bookseller/publisher at Scarthin Books, Cromford, Derbyshire, UK. An antiquarian bookseller in two senses, I now have more 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 and textile designs. Presenting a paper and experiencing so many others at Bridges Seoul 2014 Mathart conference was a great treat, as were the spirited MathsJam Annual Conferences in November 2016 and 2017. I'm building up to a more academic journal paper and trying hard to find practical outlets in graphic design and landscape architecture. I submitted 8 ft square tiling designs to the Wirksworth Festival Art and Architecture Trail in 2016 and 2017. I love giving illustrated talks, tailored to the audience. Get in touch to commission or to collaborate.
