Computer Graphics: Principles and Practice is the most exhaustive overview of computer graphics techniques available. This textbook's 21 chapters cover graphics hardware, user interface software, rendering and a host of other subjects. Assuming a solid background in computer science or a related field, Computer Graphics gives example programs in C and provides exercises at the end of each chapter to test your knowledge of the material. The guide has more than 100 beautiful, four-colour photographs that illustrate important topics and algorithms, such as ray tracing and bump maps, and also inspire you to acquire the skills necessary to produce them. Encyclopaedic in its coverage, the book has a good table of contents so that you can immediately turn to information on the z-Buffer algorithm or the chapter on animation. --Jake Bond [via]
