Pioneering Digital Art - 1990

The cover art has the appearance of hand-drawn Chi­nese brush work on rice paper. It was, in fact, produced by Chinese artist Leslie Tseng-Tseng Yu, but was her first experience using an interactive computer system as an electronic brush. She entitled this work "View from Hudson Watch." The traditional red signature seals are those of the artist and the art director, and were scanned and reproduced electronically. The software was created by David Small, a Research Specialist at the Visible Language Workshop of the Media Laboratory at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts, as a continuation of the EICON ( Expert Illustration Configuration) Project originally funded by IBM.
