Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Serious CG professionals and researchers have long admired the work of Andrew Glassner, whose columns have graced the pages of IEEE Computer Graphics & Applications for nearly a decade. In this full-color book, he’s revised, expanded, and updated his favorites. The result: a wonderfully imaginative tour of advanced CG techniques and algorithms -- and a look at how one of the field’s most interesting minds goes about solving difficult, intriguing problems.

Glassner’s range is formidable: His projects range from pop-up cards to 3D morphing, typography metrics to Spirograph-like pictures, synthetic cubism to visual logic, crop circles to digital weaving. His knowledge -- about CG and the rest of the world -- is deep. And his enthusiasm is extremely contagious. Bill Camarda

Bill Camarda is a consultant, writer, and web/multimedia content developer. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2003 and Upgrading & Fixing Networks for Dummies, Second Edition.
