When one thinks of tessellations, one may frequently think of the somewhat surreal and at times claustrophobic renderings of the legendary M.C.Escher, whose designs decorate many a college student's living space. Designed to celebrate tessellations, this website is maintained by David Annal, who himself has created a number of compelling patterns using tessellations, and placed them on the site. Persons looking for some basic information about tessellations should take a look at the Tessellations section, which contains a brief description of this phenomenon, a biographical profile of M.C. Escher, and several recommended books on the subject. The Galleries area is worth a look, as it contains a number of Annal's own designs, such as Foreign Legion, a number of tessellations by Escher, and a few submitted by visitors to the site. The feature that is perhaps the most interesting for aspiring artists is an instructional section on how to make tessellations using a variety of methods and constructions.
