Every now and again I get a book for review that has nothing to do with software development. If I think the book deserves your attention (in the wider sense that someone in your family or among your friends might be interested I grab a few lines of space. This is one such book.

Computers are not end objects but tools for doing things, writing books, playing games, communicating with friends. Because computers have strong graphical potential they are prime candidates for those that want to explore graphical representations. The author of this book aims to show how the wide range of tools currently available, scanners, electronic cameras, printing fonts, editing software combine to allow more people to explore their creative talents.

An interesting book packed with ideas and sources of further information. One for those whose minds yearn for a little creative expression.
