Format: Paperback
This is the first book to cover the ins and outs of the Portable Network Graphics format. Now that this book is available everyone on the web should dump GIF along with Unisys's lawyers and switch to PNG. It contains everything you need to know about the purpose of PNG, the file format, and applications and libraries that support PNG. Many will be interested in the discussion of gamma correction and XYZ color which is illustrated with color plates.

Format: Paperback
This was a good book to skim through... and should be in a web designers library. People missed the memo, which is too bad.

For video, rendering 3d to exr is much nicer than png... but website wise, knowledge of png simply makes you more effective using it.
