Algebraic Expressions: Handwoven Textiles by Ada K. Dietz, 1949
Reprinted editions of this draft book for textile weaving based on mathematical equations, price is $20.00 plus tax, shipping is available. “As patterns grew and the possibilities opened up, I found that mathematics gave the beautiful space divisions, proportions, and individuality of pattern which the artist strives to achieve.
