This summer, Weiser Books will release Farber’s Meta-Magick:Book of Atem. What does this book entail? Find out in the proceeding interview.

She worked in pharmaceutical laboratories that specialized in allergy products and when she couldn’t find a babysitter, I’d come along to the lab.

He was the inventor, in 1965, of the first computer-based color scanner and the four color separation process that we now know as the CMYK protocol. This was an invention that literally changed the world of media – enabling major magazines like Life, Look, Time, Newsweek, etc. to specialize in photojournalism and bring images of the wider world into the homes of millions.
