About the Book
Images found by deep exploration of the Mandelbrot Set in
formulas written by Don. These images had never before seen the
light of day, hidden as they were in the depths of fractal space.
Such art had not been conceived or imagined before the advent
of fractals, discovered by the geometrician Benoit Mandelbrot,
father of fractals, whose life and ideas Don comments upon in the
introduction. Breathtaking art. 60 curious and dramatic images.
80 pages. Full authoritative color.
Published by the Museum of Computer Art.
