Description: "In the book "M.C.Escher kaleidocycles" (orignally published in 1977) the mathematician Doris Schattschneider and the graphic designer Wallace Walker used some of the well known periodic drawings of the Dutch artist M.C.Escher to decorate kaleidocycles. They showed how to cover kaleidocycles continuously with repeating patterns (provided they have certain symmetry properties). It should be noted that in the work of Escher himself kaleidocycles do not appear. " This is a book of kaleidocycles, folding paper three dimensional shapes, printed with art by M.C. Escher. Text in Spanish. Water damage across top 1/4 of book has caused waving, but all the calidociclos are there, and should not be affected structurally. They are made to be punched out, folded, and glued. Complete and in color. Staple-bound. Previous owner's name sticker inside cover.
