Over time I will be mentioning, reviewing, and discussing a wide range of books, tools, etc. I thought it would be handy to consolidate the best of these in one place for easy reference. As time goes on I will do my best to keep this page updated with all the best geometric art resources that I come across.

Web Site Building Stuff
This category is a little different – it’s not about geometric art per se, but rather about the tools I use to build and maintain this web site, as well as several others I work on. I’m including it because people often ask me how I’ve built the site, how I’ve accomplished “X”, etc.
Bluehost – A fantastic web hosting service with low pricing, unlimited space and bandwidth, multiple domain hosting, 1-click WordPress install… so far I’m using it for all my sites and have never had a glitch.
