FORM+CODE  by Casey Reas and Chandler McWilliams

Casey has been hard at work with Chandler McWilliams and LUST to write
“FORM+CODE in Design, Art, and Architecture”, a non-technical introduction
to the history, theory, and practice of software in the arts. It’s densely
packed with diverse projects and images. The book’s website has a nice set
of introductory Processing examples:

The excellent new book “Processing for Visual Artists: How to Create
Expressive Images and Interactive Art” by Andrew Glassner is now available.
It’s the longest Processing book yet coming in at 955 pages, and it’s also
well written, clearly organized, and full color throughout.
