Many years ago, Tom Wickham-Jones wrote a book, "Mathematica Graphics: 
Techniques & Applications", which I own. It was accompanied by the 
ExtendGraphics application, which included nice packages for drawing the 
Mandelbrot set and Delaunay set, among other things.

The application is also available at:

But they don't work with Mathematica 8, at least under Mac OS X. The 
.zip download includes Windows .exe binaries; the .tar download includes 
ingredients for compiling binaries (including a "build" file, but the 
build fails under OS X due to missing libraries from Solaris).

Anybody have a version of the requisite binary files that work with 
current Mathematica under OS X 10.7 (Lion)?
