|Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...|
The Museum publishes a series of elegant catalogs of its exhibits, contests and shows. |
To date, Blurb has published 20 of these catalogs, all available at Blurb now. This
series documents the history of digital art in our era.
|Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...|
MOCA spreads its net widely and has done so for 20 years. Its artists include the|
world's best. These catalogs are often used by the exhibiting artists as promotional
material to build and promote their art careers. For the student and scholar,
they provide a comprehensive overview of contemporary digital art.
|This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)|
These catalogs give digital art a proud public face and lend credence|
to the idea that digital art has emerged as one of the high fine arts of our, or any, era.
