However, this book, while interesting, is not necessarily the best selection of digital art. There are a number of striking, memorable images here. But Mr. Gibb's tastes are narrow and rather dark, and the selections tend to look as if they were all by the same artist. Then there are some 'humorous' images, clownish montages, which may be amusing to some but for me don't work at all. Finally, the interviews with the artists are poorly edited or translated and come across as gibberish - I wish the space had been used for photos instead.
There are many places online to see fantastic examples of photoshop and digital photography so this book is only one source among many.
