|The Fractal Geometry of Beauty
Extent: 48 pages
Format: 230 x 300 mm
This exciting book contains 47 mandalas (black contours printed on thick paper with white off set colouring) inspired by the most famous fractals in the history of mathematics. Fractals, as incredible geometric objects, have an amazing therapeutic effect. Colouring these visible representations of mathematic principles endowed with magnetic beauty halts the flood of thoughts that beset us and offers space for the imagination and creative energy. But the scope of this book does not stop there. Added to this space for expression is the discovery that fractals are geometric representations of concrete mathematical functions and possess unsuspected characteristics. The secret mission of this book is to familiarize fans of mandalas with the strange reality of fractal objects discovered in 1972 by the French mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot.
Large format and high-quality paper promotes the use of different colouring techniques: crayons, markers, pastels, watercolour, ink and acrylic paint, including felt-safe transfer, thanks to sufficiently thick paper. This book is for all those who love drawing and colouring, novice or experienced, in search of relaxation and interested in exploring the amazing shapes of fractals.
