My book, “Nature’s Geometry: Succulents,” officially is for sale now at my new Etsy shop.
Next day shipping with free shipping to anywhere in the world.
That might change as I get more experienced in shipping,
so order now while shipping is free!
“Nature’s Geometry: Succulents” uses over 600 photographs to examine how the Fibonacci sequence of numbers is exhibited in Nature, particularly succulents. About 99% of the photographs are mine, and about 95% of the plants are mine, as well.
Soft cover only. 174 pages.
Covers the shape of plants, the number of plant ribs, the number of spines in areoles, golden angles, phyllotaxis (the divergent angle), golden triangles, Fibonacci triangles, golden squares, golden rectangles, circles, fractals, and, most fascinating to him, golden spirals.

I have one review so far, posted on Instagram by dr.cactus_man, the President of the Long Beach Cactus Club:
My 2020 calendars “Nature’s Geometry: Spirals,” will be in my Etsy shop by tomorrow. Price will be $20 with free shipping to anywhere in the world.
I will have a sneak peak of the full spirals calendar tomorrow.
I also will have other 2020 calendars available by December 1: Nature’s Geometry: Succulents, for sure, and others featuring roses, orchids, cats, animals, and trains. I’m sure I’ll find more subjects as I’m browsing my huge collection of photographs.
