The many small simple graphics projects can also be used in courses in geometry, graphics, or general mathematics. Code for many of the illustrations is included, and can be downloaded from the book's web site: ww. ath. ca/~Mathematicians; scientists, engineers, and even graphic designers seeking help in creating technical illustrations need look no further.

The current version has been published as a book of about 350 pages by Cambridge University Press. By agreement with the Press, however, it will remain posted on this web site. Many improvements in the current version over previous ones are due to the (anonymous) referees of the Press, whom I wish to thank heartily.

Casselman's book certainly does its best to address the two topics of geometry and PostScript, and in this respect it is excellent. This book is a wonderful compilation of ideas from elementary euclidean geometry (in 2 and 3 dimensions) computer graphics (postscript) and aesthetics. The material is presented in an extremely lucid style. In my opinion the author masterfully shows how we can combine simple geometric ideas and a computer graphics to create beautiful text and pictures.

High quality mathematical illustration has long been a specialized craft, akin to the layout of musi-cal scores or mathematical formulæ. Drawing errors are of course a problem for the un-derstanding of a proof.

Mathematical Illustrations: A Manual of Geometry and PostScript (Paperback). Mathematicians, scientists, engineers, and even graphic designers seeking help in creating technical illustrations need look no further

This practical introduction to the techniques needed to produce high-quality mathematical illustrations is suitable for anyone with basic knowledge of coordinate geometry. Bill Casselman combines a completely self-contained step-by-step introduction to the graphics programming language PostScript with an analysis of the requirements of good mathematical illustrations. The many small simple graphics projects can also be used in courses in geometry, graphics, or general mathematics. Code for many of the illustrations is included, and can be downloaded from the book's web site: www.math.ubc.ca/~cass/graphics/manualMathematicians; scientists, engineers, and even graphic designers seeking help in creating technical illustrations need look no further.

If you work with PostScript, math, or computer graphics, get this book. Unfortunately, Cambridge University Press still uses the same awful bindings they've been foisting upon an unsuspecting public for over a decade. Don't even think about trying to see if this book will lay flat when opened - for example, in the remote chance that you may actually want to use the text, at a desk, in front of a computer. The weak binding glue will break once you open the text past about 120 deg, and if you still insist on reading, each page will helpfully detach itself from the spine as you turn it, and very soon you won't have a book anymore, but a collection of book parts, which fails to function as a book in the one critical aspect which is both necessary and sufficient for books. A real shame, as the text is beautifully designed. Aesthetics aside, the text itself is worth the annoyance, and is ultimately what you're paying for, rather than the poor craftsmanship, which is included for free by the publisher.

Reading this book will be a pleasant intellectual endeavor!
