Daily Book Graphics #43 / Artist and Computer




This book is a fascinating document from the beginning of the computer graphics age. Published in 1975, it profiles a number of artists who worked with computers. Back then doing anything visual on a computer involved long and complicated processes. This book belonged to my father (he wrote his name on the cover), in 1975 he was teaching art history and filmmaking at the University of Wisconsin Whitewater.

Looks neat. I have done digital art for about a decade now and find the intersection between the machine and the artist an interesting aspect of the process.
