The idea for the Sierpiński Triangle was presented for the first time on 15 March 1915 in Paris. Originally designed to provide a Jordan curve every point of which is a point of ramification, it witnessed a revival as the most famous fractal in the late 1970s. Ten years after that, its connections to Pascal’s Arithmetical Triangle and to the Tower of Hanoi were discovered and another decade later these led to the definition of Sierpiński Graphs. Meanwhile, many different groups of scientist had considered similar objects, such that it is now time to bring some order into the Sierpiński-type graphs zoo.
