Hi All!
   Just thought I’d let you all know that I’ve got a book out today:

“Alt.Fractals: A visual guide to fractal geometry and design” ISBN 0955706831

It’s a round-up of a range of fractal types, with an emphasis on “alternative” versions and some of the more obscure info (hence the name). It misses out a few major items, like the Cantor ternary set (too boring), and the Newtonian fractal. I really like the Newty fractal, and think it's really pretty, but I couldn’t think of anything fresh to say about it and pagespace was tight, so out it went.

250+ main diagrams, so there’s probably going to be something in there that’s new or undocumented, through sheer statistics! smiley.

Figures are mono/greyscale, and there’s not much text, I wanted the point of the book to be the diagrams and pictures rather than text descriptions. It's mostly accessible to newbies (just pictures and how-to diagrams), but a little bit of 4D theory stuff snuck in.

There's some discussion of "atomistic" fractals (fractals that have a lower limit, you zoom in, and zoom in, and eventually ... bonk, you hit a brick wall), which I haven't seen discussed elsewhere much. I might start a discussion topic here on them here if people are interested.

Thanks, cKleinhuis!
   I did think of adding a link, but I wasn't sure about forum etiquette.

For what it's worth, the book's blog is at:

Please do. I often think about this when:
1/ I do deep zooms
2/ I think about fractals properties of subsets of the integers

Welcome to the forums and congratulations for your book smiley

I've had this book for some time and can reccommend it highly....nice piece of work...and a great reference for those of us that are not quite in the fractal genius and scholar like many on here
