Just a link today: Mike Croucher over at Walking Randomly has some gorgeous pictures of fractal constructions called “pentaflakes”, made by recursively gluing pentagons together in various ways. He’s also made a Mathematica demonstration for playing around with various sorts of “n-flakes” interactively (you don’t need Mathematica to try it out—just the free Mathematica Player).
