This paper presents a group of polyhedra I made for a traveling exhibition on geometry. It describes how the beautiful photographs made to document them inspired the creation of a book called Polyhedra: Eye Candy to Feed the Mind, and gives geometric examinations of a few forms, including two new shapes that I discovered.
