A Handlebody and Knot composed of polygons

    Has anyone seen any literature related to the construction of topological structures with geometric composition as seen below?

    Do you mean specifically? Or are you generally interested in physical constructions of mathematical objects? George Hart (father of Vi Hart, famed quirky creator of math videos) does some amazing constructions. http://georgehart.com/

    Hi, thank you for the reply and the link to Professor Hart's web page. As to the photo I posted, I was hoping for any articles or books that are about constructing topological structures such as knots, links, tori/handlebodies and Mobius strips with geometric composition as for instance polyhedra, polygons, lines and points specifically.
