H.S.M. Coxeter's delight in geometric form was the catalyst for fruitful two-way interactions with artists, sculptors, and model-makers. His publications and personal encouragement inspired them to create breathtaking expressions of the power and beauty of geometry. The inspiration was often reciprocal: the artists' expressions, frequently guided by their unique intuition, sparked Coxeter's geometric curiosity and often provided new mathematical insight.
