Airswimmer ,

Polyhedra is incredibly beautiful.

This book has incredible interactive graphics that truly take you into another dimension. Bertol is a scholar at the intersection of art and geometry, and she takes the reader/viewer through spaces that one could not imagine without these images. The images in this book are much more interesting than most of what you see in computer imaging, and then it's amazing to see how they are mathematically constructed. I think this author does a lot more with the interactive potential of electronic books on the ipad than any other books I have seen.
