How to recreate this complex iteration

I came across this image in a book Im reading: (taken from Rational Iteration Complex Analytic Dynamical Systems from Steinmetz. I hope it is okay to share it here)

and I try to recreate it in Mathematica. I tried

JuliaSetPlot[(9 + 2 z + 9 z^2)/20, z]

which gives a complete different picture. I also tried to use

ColorFunction -> With[{cf = ColorData["M10DefaultFractalGradient"]}, cf@Sqrt[#3] &]

which doesn't improve anything. So JuliaSetPlot might not be the right method. Do you have any suggestions?

The theorem is talking about disks and you've plotted a Julia set which doesn't involve transforming any disks, but instead iterates at every point and testing if that point reaches the escape radius. I might not be reading it correctly, but it looks like the image is an iterated conformal map of some initial configuration of disks that touch the unit circle at a point.

This is a bit of a rough answer that cheats a bit by converting to an image and uses WFR function "ComplexTransformImage" to do the heavy lifting. Hopefully somebody can improve upon it, but it looks a bit more like your picture at least:

(* Start by generating the disks and creating an image *)
SeedRandom;
img = Rasterize[Graphics[
Table[{RandomColor[], Disk[{u, 0}, 1 - u]}, {u, 0, 1, .025}]
, ImagePadding -> 50], RasterSize -> 1024]

(* Apply the conformal map to the image *)
f[{x_, y_}] := With[{z = x + y I}, (9 + 2 z + 9 z^2)/20]
ResourceFunction["ComplexTransformImage"][img, f, 0.8, 1] The left image is the initial configuration of disks, and the right is what you get after applying the map once with a range setting of 0.8.
