A detailed map of the Mandelbrot Set, in a beautiful vintage style
Meticulously researched and compiled, the Mandelmap poster functions as a thought-provoking guide to the astonishingly complex Mandelbrot set. Click the image above to see a larger view. I hope the poster inspires you to think about fractals and our world in a new way.

The Mandelmap features:
- Several familiar locations labeled with their colloquial names, together with accompanying illustrations. Find the Seahorse Valley, and see why it's named that way.
- Hundreds of bulbs labeled by hand according to period numbers. Count to infinity by even numbers, count to infinity by odd numbers, or even find the Fibonacci sequence! It's all there in the period numbering.
- Hundreds of external angles labeled according to how far around the set you are in a counter-clockwise direction. This maps the border of the Mandelbrot set to a circle.
- Equipotential lines that show how fast points outside the Mandelbrot Set escape to infinity under iteration of the equation.
- Several high quality zoomed-in renderings, with detailed information describing how to find similar locations.
- Julia Medallions, and where to find them. Julia Sets are very closely related fractals that uses the same formula but in a slightly different way.
- A clear and practical description for how to use the formula that defines the Mandelbrot set.
- ... and much, much more!
