From cave paintings to Maurice Sendak, a look at the masters of the form...

 

[A long and in-depth article which ends appropriately at the eBook:  "The eBook isn't about winning or losing. It's about an 'exploration,' and experience, rather like a pop-up book. What many publishers are doing wrong at the moment is just copying printed picturebooks on to this format, which does both media a disservice."]

Celebrating 30 Years of the PC - A Graphic History

Celebrating 30 Years of the PC - A Graphic History | Global Insights | Scoop.it

Many years have passed and plenty of milestones were met along the way, from the first PC clones in 1982, to the Internet revolution in the 90s and the so-called post-PC devices hitting the market today. We didn't want to let the occasion go by without paying our respects to the legacy that the 5150 brought. Here are some of the most important developments in the industry over the last 30+ years.

A Remarkable Animation Of The History Of The Universe

A Remarkable Animation Of The History Of The Universe | Global Insights | Scoop.it

There’s so much we know that we’ll never see. We can extrapolate the concept of the Big Bang--the explosion of everything in the universe from a focused point.
So projects like Beginning, an animation by Grzegorz Nowiński from Novina Studio, are remarkably important. It tells a sort of good parts version of the history of the universe, from the Big Bang to the rise of humankind. Not only is the piece pure visual delight filled with stark textures and fine particle effects that look particularly stunning when projected on water, Beginning is a grounding piece of context--somewhat imagined, sure--but the sort of imagined thing that very much centers our perspective of reality. The average person sort of knows what the Big Bang looked like because of projects like this one, even if Beginning is far more stylized than photoreal.
