Beautifully illustrated book which explains how nature's patterns are woven together by self-organization, through simple, local interactions within their component parts. The products of self-organization are universal patterns we all recognise: spirals, spots, stripes, branches, and honeycombs.
Philip Ball has produced a superb book about patterns in nature, The Self-Made Tapestry. From the ribbed desert sands to tree-form streaks of lightening, countless examples give rise to fascinating reflections on the astounding order that exists amid chaos. Lavishly illustrated, this is a stunning book. The Sunday Times
