Creative Graphics


This book describes how to exploit the excellent graphics facilities provided by the BBC Microcomputer. Starting with first principles the book procees to explore more advanced routines, explaining in detail the individual procedures that go to make up whole programs.

There are listings for 36 programs which will run on either the A or B Model BBC or the Acorn Electron to produce a dazzling range of pictures and patterns in full colour, including animated pictures, recursively-defined curves, and rotating three-dimensional shapes.

A complete cassette of the programs described in the book is also available.

First sentence

The BBC microcomputer provides high resolution graphics at a remarkably low cost, and the programs in this book arise from a desire to show off this machine's immensely powerful graphics capabilities.
