Computer Graphics: Principles and Practice

I am now the proud owner of this book!
A very nice book, hardcover, 1200 pages, and of course a great, if not the reference book for computer graphics.
Charl has got his version signed by Jim Foley himself, the last time he visited our group. Maybe he’ll come back some time to sign mine… 🙂
Anyway, I got the book for a mere £ 39.99, or approx. 57 Euros!
Ok, I had to go to London to pick it up, by I was planning to go there anyway…

My weekend in London was very nice, with beautiful weather (30 degrees). On Friday and Monday my brother and sister-in-law had to work, of course, so I did a bit of sightseeing London on my own, visiting Oxford Street, Regent Street, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square and The Mall on Friday, and St. Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster with the Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Whitehall, again Trafalgar Square and finally Covent Garden on Monday.
On Saturday, we went to Hampton Court Palace, an enormous display of wealth in paintings, carpets, porcelain (Delfts blue!), large rooms, and huge gardens, of Henry VIII (1509-47) and later William III of Orange (1689-1702) and Mary (1689-94).
Definitely worth a visit if you have a day to spare in London!
