Book Description

Aug. 9 2010

Learn how to create gorgeous and expressive imagery with the Processing graphics language and environment. It's easy with this practical, hands-on book. Processing is for artists, designers, visualization creators, hobbyists, or anyone else looking to create images, animation, and interactive pieces for art, education, science, or business. Processing for Visual Artists shows you everything you need to know in a friendly, project-based style designed for visual thinkers.

The projects can serve as a starting point for your own original, creative development and exploration. Walk with veteran author Andrew Glassner on a journey of shared discovery as he uses Processing to take each project from inspiration to reality. You'll closely follow every step he takes and see exactly how each piece evolves, including the big and small mistakes he's made along the way (and how to fix them!), and the times when he changed direction.

As your knowledge and skills grow and develop, you'll understand why Processing is such a powerful tool for self-expression. And you'll be ready to strike off on your own. Processing offers you a 21st-century medium for expressing new kinds of ideas and engaging audiences in new ways. This book gives you everything you need to know to explore new frontiers in your own images, animations, and interactive experiences.

Review

It provides a project-based organization designed for artists and other types of visual thinkers, showing how to use Processing to create successful results. The step-by-step focus for each piece builds on knowledge and skills and makes for a fine pick for engaging artists who have Processing and want to make the most of it!
The Midwest Book Review, August 2011

The major contributions of this book are its uncompromising clarification of the creation of graphics using Processing and helping the reader to understand the principles underlying the language constructs to be used. … the book has much to offer to an experienced programmer. I highly recommend the book for those who already write code, but want to extend their knowledge, to clarify concepts, to clean up bad practices they acquired elsewhere, and to improve their understanding in a richer context. The book is excellent for turning a beginning programmer into a self-confident and well-equipped one, who can not only admire and adopt, but also design and create expressive images similar to the ones discussed in the book.
Journal of Mathematics and the Arts, August 2011

... quite accessible, using projects as platforms for teaching basics. A top pick, this includes color art image examples throughout.
The Midwest Book Review, January 2011

If you are a visual artist looking to take your work on a new path, Andrew Glassner's new book is an exciting and incredibly comprehensive guide to using Processing to create imagery with computation.
—Daniel Shiffman, September 2010

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good intro for a non progammer Feb. 9 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Really liked the style here. Non intimidating and very clear introduction to how to use a computer to create visual effects. I'd recommend to anyone with a pure arts background who wanted to come into the topic.

Only reason I dont give it a 5 is that if you have already done some programming then the explanations may be a bit long winded.

5.0 out of 5 stars more than just Processing !! Oct. 11 2010
By jeffh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is a great introduction to the Processing language. But it is much more than that. The author describes all the little decisions that a good programmer makes when writing a program. What is a good name for this variable? How will I test this function? What's the best way to exit this loop? I have never before seen a book that even mentions these tiny decisions that can make-or-break a program. Have a look for yourself. Each little step is clearly explained. Glassner shines a light that shows how real programmers think while they work. This is a terrific guide to programming that is useful for beginning programmers in any language.
