penrose – A TikZ library for producing Penrose tilings

This package provides a TikZ library for drawing Penrose tiles. It currently supports the kite/dart, rhombus, and pentagon tile sets. There are two main methods for their placement: one that automatically generates a tiling, and one that allows for “by hand” placement. Furthermore, the tiles themselves can be deformed and will still (hopefully!) fit together in the correct fashion.

This package is now superseded by package tilings, which deals with more extensive tiles than just the Penrose tile sets.
