I have a copy of the Processing version of the book which I like very much and was hesitant to download this edition if it was simply a translation of the code from Processing to p5.

Nevertheless, I pre-ordered it, receiving my copy today. A quick glance shows that it is a substantially new book. The art featured in the first section of the book is different than that of the previous work. The topic selection itself seems somewhat different although there is of course a lot of overlap. This present book contains some neat ideas which don't have any direct analog with the earlier edition e.

If there are any cons, it is that the book is substantially smaller than the earlier one pages rather than It doesn't delve into the theory quite so much. While it is still a stunningly beautiful programming book, it doesn't seem like quite the same labor of love as the first edition.

Furthermore, as a paperback edition, the book doesn't lie open as easily as the other.

The book ›Generative Gestaltung‹

For this reason, I was tempted to give the book 4 stars, but the sheer beauty of the book compels me to give it 5. If only all programming books were so fun to look at.

A very handy format, clear layout and very well thought out. An excellent reference book for creative coding with many examples and practical explanations. Highly recommended for beginners.

downloadd this book after the German edition received rave reviews, now in an English translation. Those familiar with the Processing programming language probably need no introduction to this book, which is why there probably aren't any reviews I dare say it doesn't need any. Still, I thought I would share an opinion. This really is a beautiful book, a chest of techniques, methods and examples for working through the Processing language in the context of generative design.

ISBN 13: 9781616890773

It's broken into two sections, with the first quarter of the book devoted to glossy full color 'plates' if u like , surveying artists working in the generative design field. The rest of the book is dedicated to the Processing language, broken into two sections - basic examples, and then more complex methods.

The textbook pages have a non-glossy paper feel, which in and of themselves are a lovely texture and weight. In particular the binding of the book is something of an achievement - each page seems to fall gently over the next, leaving an open book that never needs much creasing or pressing to get the spine to lay flat. It is a heavy book, so probably best set next to a computer and a cup of coffee as you wade through the many examples.

It has to be said that the examples here are also expectedly beautiful, and unlike other programming books, they don't resort to a uninspiring aesthetic or to ugly sketches that no one wants to code. The sketches in this book are simply gorgeous and the kind of thing that probably made you want to get started with Processing in the first place.

The layout is also fantastic, with clear pointers to what each part of the code means and does, not to mention great full color representations of the sketches variations. It's very hard for me not to recommend this book to any Processing programmer, or to any beginning Processing user, but I would have to say it might not be the best place to start. Having said that if you're interested in Processing or Generative Design you should go out and download this book right now, it will leave you inspired for months and maybe years.

Following on from there Generative Design is like a more advanced text to the Reas and Fry version. Coupled with the examples provided on the companion website freely downloadable , and the fact they upgraded the code in this English text to Processing 2.

And while I do love the artist pages at the beginning of the book I can't help but feel it wouldn't have been a loss if they were omitted. That's just a personal opinion and my reason for 4 stars , as the focus for me here and the real attraction to the book is the 'textbook' part. If anything it would have made it more 'backpackable' - enabling it to be taken on the go with less strain on the shoulders. I've yet to scour the book from end to end so this is more of general vibe of what it's like in person.

An absolutely fabulous text and a book worth keeping for life, that will certainly sit as a crucial text in the processing lineage along with DBN, Creative Code and the Processing Programming Handbook. I bought it after hesitating due the the textbook high pricing because it was highly recommended by students and instructors alike in a Intro to Computational Arts course I took recently online via SUNY.

It is a beautiful book and so well organized. The only knock is I wish in some cases it would give fuller code examples in some of the more involved sketches. I find by typing the code snippets as it is being broken down and explained is a very useful way to 'experience' and learn to code.

I've been working with Processing for a long time and it is one of the best for both explaining the use of the Processing language and framing it with in context of Graphic Arts and design principles.

Joey Lee explores geographies mediated through data and computation.

Another example and perhaps a bit more accessible to people new to coding is Matt Perason's Generative Art: This book Generative Design: Visualize, Program and Create with Processing has been a great 'next' step more advance text and reference. In the end this is a book I will go back to many many times and has been surprisingly well worth the price. This is definitely one of my favorite books on yes, Processing - but also simply a beautifully designed book in its own right.

It's even worthwhile simply as a collection of inspiring generative art, even if you have no interest in learning the code from a practical level. If you do, however, you're in for even more of a treat, because the code examples are laid out beautifully.

As a designer, it's amazingly refreshing to see educational material treated in a way that is both easy to understand and aesthetically pleasing. The visual examples are diverse and inspiring, and the code is explained in a way that is relatively straightforward to understand. It's helpful if you have a fundamental understanding of Processing or coding in general , but because it's broken apart so well, you don't need to understand everything to be able to grasp the core functionality.

There are other books that are better for teaching basic concepts in a methodical way Daniel Shiffman does a great job with Learning Processing and then The Nature of Code , but this book is great to add to the collection for its variety of inspiring examples. Most of the works have walkthroughs of the code side by side, and the actual source code is available to download as well.

If you're interested in Processing or generative art, I can't recommend this book enough. The creators of this book clearly poured their heart and soul into this book, as every aspect of it is meticulously designed to encourage learning and creativity. One person found this helpful. Gorgeous book filled with insight and inspiration.
