 Description
 Probably the right curve was a circle's involute.
"...Its successive turns are parallel curves with constant separation distance..."
Not sure how this can be proven, but this seems to fit well with the concept of stroked path as parallel curves at it's edges.
Mathematical functions for the parametric curve is
x=a*(cos(t)+t*sin(t))
y=a*(sin(t)t*cos(t))
