Planar crystallographic groups are one of the very first mathematical creations of humankind. This book's goal is the gradual unveiling of the structural and the mathematical that hides behind the visual and the artistic.

We outline some interesting results with illustrations made by dynamic software. We center around the notions of reflection and isogonal conjugation, and introduce a number of interesting triangle centers, lines, conics, and a few cubic curves.
