"Miller lucidly explains the evolution of computer art techniques and technology, from the development of the first crude computer-generated geometric images to the use of digital makeup and matte painting in films, video games, advertising, and comic books. The author is especially skilled at explaining important concepts and terms relating to computer art, like fractals or raster graphics, avoiding both condescension and convolution. . . The wonderful cover depicting a grinning demonic face with glittering eyes and far too many teeth will attract even reluctant readers, while the classy graphics and fascinating information will enthrall them to the last page. It should fly off the shelves."
