This comprehensive work by Parke and Waters, which includes many prevalent techniques in computer animation, discusses in particular the current state-of-the-art in face creation and the manipulation of facial attributes using the computer. A visual cornucopia of images, diagrams, and color plates, this book places facial animation in an historical framework and then looks ahead at its promising future in industry, research, and education.' A fascinating and comprehensive technical treatment.
