Hyperbolic Plane Crocheting

Bookninja sent me to the Guardian, which gave me the headline,

Winner announced for world’s oddest book title award

Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes by Daina Taimina beats Collectible Spoons of the Third Reich

which is pretty good in itself, but frankly, even cooler is the fact that Taimina is a mathemetician who explains the constant negative curvature of hyperbolic planes by illustrating them via crochet. That’s freakin’ genius! Here is what it looks like.

Note: it’s April 1, but the post is no joke.
