A Mathematician's Guide to the Alhambra
This highly-illustrated volume is the text that you need to have in front of you as you explore the rich Moorish tiling patterns that decorate the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain. It tells you... More > where to look, and what you are looking at. It tackles the claim that all of the 17 possible tilings are to be found in the Alhambra (the answer is 'yes', 'no' and 'maybe'!).

It's an essential guide if you are visiting the Alhambra (whether or not you are a mathematician), but it also is an entertaining read even if you haven't left home!
