Publisher: New York: W. H. Freeman and Company, 1991.

What emerged from his long years of solitary struggle is an elaborate computer program that makes drawings autonomously, without human intervention--an electronic apprentice and alter ego called Aaron. Aaron borrows ideas from artificial intelligence and embodies general rules that Harold Cohen has derived from his own experince as an artist.." Shipping weight 3 lbs. (International 2 lbs., 4 oz.)
