Using four basic geometric transformations (rotation, translation, reflection and slipped reflection), the reader is invited to play with combinations and rules to produce original and breathtaking friezes, mosaics and tessellations . The author approaches different mathematical principles with clarity and pedagogy. The steps, explained step by step, are illustrated with illuminating diagrams, which allow the reader gradually to take his autonomy.
