In this book Jan van de Craats considers symmetry with a mathematical eye. This is a mathematical book without any formulas, mathematical equations or proof. It contains simple descriptions, beautiful pictures and plain drawings. Reading this book will change your way of looking at symmetrical objects and patterns.
