Any planar set of intersecting straight lines forms a four-coordinated graph, or 'lattice', provided no three lines intersect at a point. For any such lattice an eight-vertex model can be constructed. Provided the interactions satisfy certain constraints (which are in general temperature-dependent), the model can be solved exactly in the thermodynamic limit, its local properties at a particular site being those of a related square lattice. A particular case is a solvable model on the Kagome lattice. It is shown that this model includes as special cases many of the models in statistical mechanics that have been solved exactly, notably the square, triangular and honeycomb Ising models, and the square eight-vertex model. Some remarkable equivalences between correlations on different lattices are also established.
