From the PublisherI was both surprised and intrigued by [the author’s] use of beautiful and historically significant artistic imagery for illustrations throughout the book. … In example after example, Hunt demonstrates how effective such imagery can be in illuminating the principles that he is trying to convey. … this book does an excellent job of covering much of colour theory, with clear descriptions and effective diagrams and illustrations … this book has an excellent structure, hitting most of the subjects inherent in the handling of digital images within a computer graphics context. … I would highly recommend The Art of Image Processing with Java to anyone wishing to obtain a broad and practical knowledge of the science of handling digital images. … I would recommend this book to any computer science faculty member desiring to create a second graphics course that could be introduced at the sophomore or junior level, prior to the 3-D computer graphics course.
