Processing for Visual Artists: How to Create Expressive Images and Interactive Art teaches how to create imagery with the Processing graphics language, created for artists, designers or any using to create images and animation for arts or business purposes. It provides a project-based organization designed for artists and other types of visual thinkers, showing how to use Processing to create successful results. The step-by-step focus for each piece builds on knowledge and skills and makes for a fine pick for engaging artists who have Processing and want to make the most of it!
―The Midwest Book Review, August 2011
The major contributions of this book are its uncompromising clarification of the creation of graphics using Processing and helping the reader to understand the principles underlying the language constructs to be used. … the book has much to offer to an experienced programmer. I highly recommend the book for those who already write code, but want to extend their knowledge, to clarify concepts, to clean up bad practices they acquired elsewhere, and to improve their understanding in a richer context. The book is excellent for turning a beginning programmer into a self-confident and well-equipped one, who can not only admire and adopt, but also design and create expressive images similar to the ones discussed in the book.
―Journal of Mathematics and the Arts, August 2011
... quite accessible, using projects as platforms for teaching basics. A top pick, this includes color art image examples throughout.
―The Midwest Book Review, January 2011
If you are a visual artist looking to take your work on a new path, Andrew Glassner's new book is an exciting and incredibly comprehensive guide to using Processing to create imagery with computation.

'Processing A Programming Handbook for Visual Designers and Artists' (Reas & Fry) is the perfect reference book, full of extremely useful information and examples written by the creators of Processing themselves, but rather hard to follow if you're new to programming.
'Learning Processing: A Beginner's Guide to Programming Images, Animation, and Interaction' (Shiffman) is perhaps the best introduction to programming with Processing (and programming in general) as it very concise and full of exercises that will make you very comfortable, very quickly, with creating your own wonderful imagery.
With 'Processing for Visual Artists: How to Create Expressive Images and Interactive Art', Andrew Glassner offers something that is a bit more than an introduction, but not quite a reference book. In over 900 pages with full colour figures, the book guides beginners through everything they need to know to start programming, up to some pretty advanced functions and concepts. Glassner uses a friendly and informal style, anchored in real world examples that are easy to follow and take the form of an apprenticeship. Indeed, Glassner guides the reader through some interesting projects, explaining each decision taken along the way, as well as correcting the mistakes he made. This approach to learning really helps the reader understand how to get the best results out of Processing. Glassner also provides a link to download every Processing sketch discussed in the book.Read more ›
