When making your wish at the Wishing Well, wish well, lest your wish be granted from an unexpected angle...
Hint of The Monkey's Paw.
Original structure from EDJS1 Batch script (hex variant) - highly recommended for interesting edisc-julian base material.

For those who salivate at the palpable atmosphere surrounding old books; whose minds frolic to the dance of impossible Latin titles; or whose palms tingle at the thought of the touch of ancient volumes: let this take you on a journey directly into the arcane skills of the bookbinder. Not the mind, mind, but the thing itself, a space consisting only of bookbinding, where that is all there is to see and be.
I like revisiting old styles I once thought exhausted. A disc-julian, with the power low and the distance a hair's breadth, colour symmetry on the dominant transform tweaked to the point of scratchiness, whose appreciation fully depends on the full view.

Leaving aside the verbal coinage of the word (aspect is normally a noun), to what do I refer? Basically, the dimensions, the aspect ratio. This is one of those really simple methods: if your fractal has a final transform, cool. If not, add one and leave it as the default linear since this won't change the fractal at all. Now, say your fractal's square, but you wanted something in a portrait aspect, perhaps 3 x 4. Engage the final transform's post-transform, switch to the Transform tab and amend the relevant X/Y value to give the desired ratio (in this case, setting the Y y-coordinate at 1.3333 provides a 3:4 ratio).

The title is a mashup of The Lotus Eaters 1983 hit 'The First Picture of You' (ah, how that recalls the summers of lost innocence...) and a twist (sic!) on Andrew Marvell's "my vegetable love" from the poem 'To His Coy Mistress'. Sometimes, I feel like a meme-jockey...

When maintenance of the divine equilibrium is threatened by the chafing bonds of humdrum existence, a visit to the Contemplation Engine can sever the iron fetters like butter and restore gentle Chaos to the throne in the midst of human ordure ;)
