Hyperbolic crochet book

Hey folks, I just got sent a link to this book. I only know what I've read from the description there, but it seems pretty cool. The aim is to explain mathematical and geometrical concepts through crochet, to give a new hands-on perspective on what are usually quite abstract ideas. So yeah, I'm very happy to see crochet being used as a way to promote maths and make it more accessible to a wider audience!
I also think it's awesome that it's reviewed by Dr. Hinke Osinga :o)

Happy knitting, and/or reading!

Hi Hugh

It really is a great book. Mike at Transreal got it in for me ages ago - I'm sure he'd order up a copy for you too.
