  • Traces NPR rules and methods again to their origins in human imaginative and prescient and perception.
  • Focuses on parts that stand to profit so much from advances in NPR, together with clinical and architectural representation, cartography, and knowledge visualization.
  • Presents algorithms for 2 and three-d results, utilizing pseudo-code the place had to make clear advanced steps.
  • Helps readers reach pen-and-ink, pencil-sketch, and painterly results, as well as different styles.
  • Explores particular demanding situations for NPR—including "wrong" marks, deformation, normal media, inventive procedure, lighting fixtures, and dimensionality.
  • Includes a sequence of programming tasks during which readers can practice the book's thoughts and algorithms.
