Best Books on Computer Graphics:
In present times I don’t even need to stress on the fact, regarding the significance and the importance of computer and computer graphics. Since the inception of the laptop, laptop because I have never owned a desktop, (my first computer was a Hewlett Packard laptop), there has not been a day, seriously not even a day that I could live without it.
Even today my Laptop, my Blackberry and my Tablet make my day, I know the time when something went wrong with my laptop and I had to do without it for a week. This was like living a nightmare, not even dreaming it, but living it. The wait for it to be repaired and to get back in my lap would just not come to an end and just to do away with this feeling, I used to work in the office some additional hours trying to make good the suffering.
However all said and done, the fact still remains the same that A computer without a graphics card or a computer without computer graphics would just be like an ordinary machine that were invented in its initial days.
Can you imagine a computer that has no access to videos, images, no twitter, no YouTube, no games , i don’t want to even think about such a device, in these present days. So this is the power of computer graphics.
After having said so much of it here are some additional books that would help you know more about computer graphics.
