Is it different from the 1st edition? Yes and no. The content is updated, many pictures that were left as placeholders and afterwards due to time constraints never replaced now are replaced. The chapter about applications of hyperbolic geometry is expanded, new chapter about my adventures after the first edition was published is added. Appendix now is much larger with pictures to illustrate how to make models, and yes, there are more models - step by step instruction for hyperbolic pair of pants, Klein Quartic, Costa surface, Figure eight knot. This book is celebrating 20 years (I cannot believe this number!) of hyperbolic crochet. I took more pictures with my models in nature, and last picture in the book is at the Ithaca Falls - the picture for the first edition was taken there in January 2008 and that is at the beginning of the book (Contents page). I carried again the same model which is now much larger to the same place in January ten years later when in Ithaca it was so cold that falls were frozen.
