Format: Hardcover
The authors attempt to summarise a number of NPR techniques published prior to the year 2000. This is an ambitious goal given the already quite broad scope of the field, and consequently many techniques are, in my opinion, only glanced upon. Results of algorithms tend to be stated, but little detail given as to their operation. Those techniques that are well documented tend to be explained through a psuedo-code which is a little too much like C to easily read, but a little too far from C to easily implement.
I would recommend this book as suitable for those who wish to learn what NPR is capable of.. but not for those who wish to implement or research NPR algorithms. The latter would be better off reading the background paragraphs of relevant published literature e.g. in SIGGRAPH.

Format: Hardcover
This book is about rendering methods. Alternative rendering methods. It's not about turning your 3D models into some photo, no. It's about making your 3D scene in to a piece of artwork. For example, water colour, oil colour, realistic pencil sketch, cartoon look etc. Have you ever seen an animation that each picture looks like a master piece of oil on canvas? Well you can grab this book and making one yourself then. Highly recommended for people with a sense of art.

Skimpy 26 Mar. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is a brief foray into the field of art based rendering. It shows images from the academic papers of the time and gives a brief overview of the techniques, but does not really demonstrate any significant insight into the methods. Look at a few NPR papers for a better grasp of the material.

Visualize another world of computer graphics 27 Aug. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is a must have for your computer library. If you are interested at all in computer graphics, then this book will show you the other side of photorealistic rendering. From charcoal, water coloring, pencil sketching, to cartooning, there is so much that this book offers. It gives a brief explanation of many of the founding research papers in NPR and cites references to all the papers you will need to go off and implement any of these techniques. Great book....

An introductory survey of realistic rendering techniques 11 Oct. 2001
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
In Non-Photorealistic Rendering, Bruce and Amy Gooch effectively collaborate to present the computer graphics student with an informative introductory survey of realistic rendering techniques that have long been utilized by artists and which can be applied in computer graphics to emphasize the subtle attributes of images while omitting extraneous visual information. The process of non-photorealistic rendering is fully explained, along with the provision of pseudo-code for some simple methods. The wide range of techniques are illustrated throughout and the text is additionally enhanced with a 32-page color insert. Non-Photorealistic Rendering is an invaluable contribution and a much appreciated addition to the computer graphics reference shelf.
