Description: A page that celebrates the beauty of 4-, 5-, 6-, and 7-fold geometric tilings, grouped according to the regular polygons that they fill. Where possible, actual dates and designers are stated. Nearly all these tiling examples are based on sides of the same unit length. The only variables are therefore the various angles and the number of sides of each piece. Any two pieces of the same colour are the same shape (or its reflection); occasionally, a second colour for the same shape is used for added contrast.
