About the Book

Joachim Wedekind: The Beauty of Turtle Graphics. An illustrated Introduction

Turtle Graphics are simple geometric line figures drawn with the „Turtle“, a controllable robot.They have a very unique aesthetic with a high recognition value. This book therefore focuses on typical images created with the turtle graphic.

This book is not an introduction to programming, but rather a picture book. Perhaps it can inspire you to program these and comparable pictures yourself. We use the visual programming environment Snap! with its turtle graphics, which allows an easy entry. Only basic programming concepts that are used to generate the respective images are briefly outlined.
