a very good book printed by Thames and Hudson, written by Chritianne Paul published in 2008. 256 pages crammed full of images, quality concise writing , a brieh historical overview, listed artist/online orgs,select bibliography plus further reading make this modestly sized book (8 x 6") an excellent read.
along with my copy of the 2000 edition of "New Media in Art" (World of Art) by Michael Rush, "Digital Art" impresses with a detailed overview of contemporary digital practice for artists across the world that include web based projects,installation video art, virtual art, data, activist + genetic art amongst other digital artforms.
but as hinted already - due to the size of book - the printed text is very small + fairly faint (a bolder font would have a world of difference) so beware - my eyes arent that bad (yet) that i should struggle to read textbook generally, but i did so with "Digtal Art" unless in bright daylight, or a magnifying glass might be required. seriously. in this kimble reader day and age - this is a shame but does not detract from an excellent book on an exciting + dynamic hi-tech visual/intellectual world. the detailed further reading + recommended online links in particular, make this book invaluable for digital art practioners + culture vultures alike.
strongly recommended overall.
