Book Description

SVG Programming: The Graphical Web, authored by leading XML expert Kurt Cagle, is a complete guide to creating, using, and accessing the powerful elements of Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG). Intermingling SVG instruction with insightful discussion of key topics such as coordinate systems and attributes, transformations, animation, and image generation, Cagle provides readers with a comprehensive guide to making the most of this rich graphical language.

Initially, readers are presented with an overview of SVG features and concepts that offers numerous examples intended to provide a sound introduction to language implementations. Following this brief introduction, the book delves directly into the heart of SVG development, covering integral SVG attributes such as transformations, shapes, text manipulation, and the incorporation of images, gradients, patterns, and masks. The later chapters are devoted to topics that demonstrate the true power of this XML-based technology, offering valuable insight into animation, interactivity and DOM, filters, and automated graphic generation.

SVG Programming: The Graphical Web offers professionals what they need to know to access the next evolutionary step in web graphical presentation: to create faster, more efficient, and more usable web applications on a level heretofore impossible.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on SVG so far Nov. 15 2002
Format:Paperback
This book is head and shoulders above the Eissenberg book (O'Reilly). Kurt Cagle is a serious developer, and the book shows it, with advanced examples that explore all aspects of programming. It would have been nice to have a .zip file that had all the examples in it, but that's a minor nit.

5.0 out of 5 stars SVG Bible for the Web July 23 2002
Format:Paperback
Finally an SVG Bible for the Web. I have worked with SVG for just under 2 years and had to learn SVG from the W3C documents and lots of "experiments". I have only reviewed half of this book so far and found a wealth of knowledge on using SVG on the Web. It's examples are solid and well organized.
This book can be used by the novice and the experienced to add the coolest vector graphics to their Website. This book is well balanced for all levels. It has earned a well respected slot next to my computer...

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Description of SVG, but Now Out of Date Dec 25 2011
By Gadgeteer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The fast moving world of most of the smart phone, tablets, and web programming languages and standards leaves this book behind the times, since it was published in 2002. Kurt Cagle is coming out with a new edition, I believe, which should be worth looking at.

I dug into this book because it came recommended. It is good, but now I'm on to other projects. I'm sure I'll get back to it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written March 6 2012
By Kalcium - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
OK book, but it is quite dated. The writing style is annoying. You can tell it's written by a coder, not a professional tech write. I don't recommend it.
