Hi Steve - looks like Escher is taking over the board! That's a great idea and superbly executed. i agree with Mike - the angels and devils design is especially neat

So I'm sitting here with my Escher interactive CD in the computer wondering what I'm gonna do to join in the fun. It includes a section on making your own tessellations which I reckon its time I had a go at - you've had advance notice - LOL!
