           LINE DESIGNS FOR THE COMPUTER - Jill Britton

          http://www.camosun.bc.ca/~jbritton/string_art/

   In the first edition (1989) of his popular book "Curve
   Stitching," John Millington included programs for the
   classic Spectrum computer that created line designs similar
   to the curve stitching designs in the book. Britton's web
   page "Line Designs for the Computer" includes a JAVA
   emulator that runs all 33 of the Spectrum programs on-line.

                  SPIDRON SYSTEM - Daniel Erdely

                  http://www.szinhaz.hu/spidron/

   Daniel Erdely's spidrons are planar, plane-filling objects.
   After three-dimensional deformation, the planar system
   generates a regular, dynamic, geometrical construction.
