The bottom two corners have been bumped. This volume has many interesting comparisons of fractals to the world we live in, and other planets. Planets, or portions of planets, are created mostly just to see what can be done with different models. The shore of a lake is a fractal, as is an apple with a bite out, and a flat leaf that an ant is returning to its nest for nourishment. This book is well illustrated with black & white and color plates, It also includes many of the calculations to get to the fractal you are viewing.. In the back of this book is the update for the second edition, and an index sorted two ways. The cover is in a deep red with gold lettering on the spine and a beautiful gold image on the front. ; B&W and Color Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9 3/4" tall; 468 pages
