things to look at: Typography Alan Kitching is a private man. It's not often that you get to see inside his workshop. This is mostly because he's busy and you would only just get in the way, but it only seems to make us all more desperate to see what goes on; to find out how he puts together his complex letterpress work and to delve into his collection of wood type. Typography Workshop began 1989 with a Stephenson Blake proofing press and some type all purchased from Derek Birdsall's Omnific. Later there were two closing print-shop auctions, plus Herbert Spencer's press and collection of wood-letter, but it was the acquisition of theatrical poster wood block letters from the small village of Wrington that really made an impact.

This will give a blocky looking result, which a smooth shaded surface does not produce. Another prerequisite for this style is that the models must be low poly (obviously!).

Learn about the Initiative toward Computer-Based Math Education Whether it's bored students, dissatisfied employers, bewildered governments, or frustrated teachers, almost everyone thinks there's a problem with math (and STEM) education today.

That's why Conrad Wolfram has founded He and many others see a growing chasm between math in education and math outside, between the increasingly irrelevant school math curriculum that contrasts with the critical and growing importance of math and its uses in the real world. They've observed how many of those involved in school math fail to appreciate the total transformation and fundamental change that computers have brought to this ancient subject in recent decades.

C in a Nutshell : Peter Prinz, Tony Crawford : 9780596006976 Review quote "As with much of the Nutshell series, this book is aimed at the competent programmer who needs a quick reference, not at the beginner. As a teacher of C programming, I had been looking for a reference work which covered the C99 version of the language standard, and did so in a readable format free of omissions and errors.
