Computer graphics: Principles and Practice, third edition, remains the most authoritative introduction to the field.

The first edition, the original “foley and Van dam,” helped to define computer Graphics and how it could be taught. The second edition became an even more comprehensive resource for practitioners and students alike. This third edition has been completely rewritten to provide detailed and up-to-date coverage of key concepts, algorithms, technologies and applications.
