Daina’s compendium of crochet history is the best I have seen, and this book is a must for the bookshelves of crochet and math students alike.
A great dip-into source for the non-euclidiens amongst us, who insist in working with wool. I wish someone would write a more general book about the mathematics of crochet.
The book is elegant, from both a visual and mathematical point of view. Hyperbolic Crochet goes Viral Appendix.
