We featured Fibonnaci art in our "FunMaths Calendar" a year or two back, and
have lots of other titles relating to Fibonnacci.

One that has just come in is entitled "Nexus: Art and Architecture" (vol 2
of a series). It ha got several references to Fibonnacci and his series, as
well as the Godled Ratio, to which it is realted, not to mention Fractal
Geometry, African Geoemtry and other Math+Art themes.
