Mandelbrot

The very first color graphic application I downloaded from 'the-Net' was FractINT an application that allowed one to 'zoom-in' on any area of the Mandelbrot Set. I spent hours and hours wandering around inside that set.

And I did purchase and read his book too The Fractal Geometry of Nature
