The theory of iterated function systems (IFS) has been used in generating fractal graphics. In this paper, a method is proposed to generate fractal Chinese characters with IFS. A Chinese character consists of strokes. In most cases, one stroke is modeled with one affirn mapping. The finite set of the contractive affirn mappings that model all the strokes construct the IFS for that Chinese character. Formulas to determine the coefficients of the IFS are deduced in this paper, and the random iteration algorithm is used to show the fractal Chinese character. The experimental results show that the generated fractal Chinese characters are self-similar and beautiful.
