    DESCRIPTION Ron Miller
    Digital art is all around us. It's in the magazines and books we read, it's on television and in the movies, it's in the games we play, and it hangs in art galleries around the world. Digital art even helps visualize the buildings we live in and the cars and aircraft we travel in. But what is digital art? Where did it come from? How does it work? And perhaps even more important, is it even art at all? Professional digital artist Ron Miller answers these questions and more—and inspires new artists to experiment with this exciting and ever-changing art form.

    Images of the Interactive Book in Action
    Lerner Interactive Books introduce students to knowledge areas in core grade-level curriculum in an engaging format. With titles that span curriculum themes from pre-K - 5th grade, Lerner Interactive Books give readers a digital option for reading that allows them to read, hear, and interact in a way that will engage and motivate them to read more and more often. It's a fast path to deepening students' love of reading and learning.
    From the opening page, audio and visual cues and easy-to-use tools help guide your students through the story. As the story begins, words are highlighted while they're read aloud. This type of word distinction better supports letter and word recognition skills, and keeps kids focused on the structure of how to read.

    Other Reviews
    "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."

    "This beautifully designed book will be an excellent background source for those beginning to experiment with art on the computer, or who are looking for information on digital art as a career option."
