Shortly after publication of the book, Susan Schechter gave me a rather handsome earthenware plate that she had made and decorated with my dissection of 7-pointed stars, which appears in Fig. 18.23 and also adorns the front dust jacket. The plate is about 10 inches in diameter and has a metalicized glaze and fabric-like texture on the seven right triangles. Of course, I assume that Susan wants me to leave the plate in one piece!
