About the Author

Donald E. Knuth is one of the world's pre-eminent computer scientists, whose works have had a profound influence on the subject since the publication in 1968 of the first volume of The Art of Computer Programming. Knuth created TeX, a language for typesetting mathematical and scientific texts, and METAFONT, a computer software system for alphabet design. He is professor emeritus at Stanford University.


'This wonderful new book contains Don Knuth's articles on TeX and METAFONT, and includes important archival material ... Reading this book is like holding in your hand twenty years of history. My view of TeX, and of the Computer Modern fonts that I use every day, has been changed completely by this book.'
