Tony Bomford's Hyperbolic Rugs

Tony Bomford (1927-2003) made a series of hooked rugs based on the Coxeter/M.C. Escher hyperbolic tiling patterns. He started the series in 1981.

You can find a useful biography and listing of the rugs (and further discussion) on Doug Dunham's pages as a series of PDF files (e.g. http://www.d.umn.edu/~ddunham/dunham04.pdf ).

  1. Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Turkey and China are among the countries where some of the finest rugs are made. Rugs from these countries are popular among locals, as well as United States, Canada and European countries. Persian hand knotted area rugs now decorate some of the richest homes in New York City and Toronto, as well as other cities in Canada and United States.
