This new zine is a collaboration between and astrophysicist and graphic artist explores this question a la a mini-zine. There is a lot of gossip and hearsay about the universal nature of spiral forms, here is the skinny from a scientist.

Of course, some spirals ARE everywhere, especially in the twisted (literally) world of artist Junji Ito.
