This is exciting, thank you for sharing Dag! If I can I'd like to also flag
my own forthcoming book on the early history of computer graphics from
1950-1980, with a focus on the University of Utah program. It will be
released in August 2021 from MIT Press:

> Hello friends,
> Just a note about computer graphics: CG pioneer and Pixar co-founder Alvy
> Ray Smith has completed an amazingly comprehensive book on the origins and
> development of computer graphics. It is in press right now with MIT Press
> and is named, “A Biography of the the Pixel.” It will be available in Sept
> 2021. I have a pre-press version and it’s superb, its coverage of
> humankind’s expressiveness in art ranging from the cave paintings of
> Altamira to *Toy Story*.
