Some of my tessellation art was used for the cover and media kits for a new linguistics textbook. Does this image look familiar? :)

you can see it on amazon:

    Really? That’s awesome! I’m kinda curious what tessellations have to do with linguistics (apart from the obvious finding patterns, etc.) but glad to see this sort of thing getting more out there :)

    Neat! Congrats! And here I was thinking you had a new angle on learning Italian.

    Ben – nothing to do with it at all other than they liked the artwork and wanted to license it. I was happy to. wish learning italian was that easy :)

    Learning applied linguistics is a piece of paper.

    I like how they picked the hi and low colors from your work. It definitely draws you in.

    The book looks really nice, and it’s on the front & back as well as inside covers. they really went with the color palette here. I’m realizing I need to spend time and energy doing good photographs of my work from all different kinds of vantage points, because what people are looking for in an image is often very different than what I might want to see… and showcasing a beautiful detail is just as good as showing the whole thing. A learning process. also understanding I need to buy a good camera and get my photo setup back together. right now I’m just living nomad-style through iphone snaps.

    So how did they find your work? Were they always looking for tesselated paper?
