Reseña del editor
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. The authors explain the principles, as well as the mathematics, underlying computer graphics-knowledge that is essential for successful work both now and in the future. Early chapters show how to create 2D and 3D pictures right away, supporting experimentation. Later chapters, covering a broad range of topics, demonstrate more sophisticated approaches. Sections on current computer graphics practice show how to apply given principles in common situations, such as how to approximate an ideal solution on available hardware, or how to represent a data structure more efficiently. Topics are reinforced by exercises, program ming problems, and hands-on projects. This revised edition features New coverage of the rendering equation, GPU architecture considerations, and importance- sampling in physically based rendering An emphasis on modern approaches, as in a new chapter on probability theory for use in Monte-Carlo rendering Implementations of GPU shaders, software rendering, and graphics-intensive 3D interfaces 3D real-time graphics platforms-their design goals and trade-offs-including new mobile and browser platforms Programming and debugging approaches unique to graphics development The text and hundreds of figures are presented in full color throughout the book. Programs are written in C++, C#, WPF, or pseudocode-whichever language is most effective for a given example. Source code and figures from the book, testbed programs, and additional content will be available from the authors' website (cgpp.net) or the publisher's website (informit.com/title/9780321399526). Instructor resources will be available from the publisher. The wealth of information in this book makes it the essential resource for anyone working in or studying any aspect of computer graphics.

This is the only book/ebook/website/anything I've found that even comes close to hitting the mark. I've read around 40% of it so far, and even though it's oriented more towards those who will actually do computer graphics programming, the underpinnings are so well laid out that it has greatly enhanced my understanding even at the hardware level. I can only imagine it is all the more useful for those approaching it from the software angle, even if the exact APIs and frameworks used are a bit different.
Furthermore, the writing is understandable. I personally orient my own writing towards ensuring the reader can comprehend what I'm saying, and I recognize the same focus here. The authors anticipate areas of confusion and address them ahead of time, and everything is cross-referenced in just the right places. Even the way the code snippets are laid out is clever, with a form of "nesting" used to emphasize the parts being discussed.
The math does get a bit dense at times. And I think the book would benefit from some editing to cut down on the very long paragraphs, which make digesting the concepts a little more difficult than they would be otherwise. But these are minor issues.
I also like the Kindle version being properly formatted like a real book so I don't have to use a magnifying glass on fuzzy tables and so forth.
Overall, a very fine piece of content for anyone who wants to learn how computer graphics work.
