The original source for this book was created in FrameMaker, processed using an automated build system based on Mathematica, and output as PDF. (See also page 852.) The diagrams in the book were created using Mathematica, and the text for programs was automatically formatted by Mathematica, with both being imported as Encapsulated PostScript. Photographs were enhanced and processed using Photoshop and Mathematica. Index manipulation was done using Mathematica and IXgen.
The fonts in the book are Trump Mediaeval, Palatino, Univers 45 and Gill Sans, with additional elements in Mathematica, Mathematica-Sans, Optima, Meridien and Janson.
The book was printed on 50-pound Finch VHF paper on a sheet-fed press. It was imaged directly to plates at 2400 dpi, with halftones rendered using a 175-line screen with round dots angled at 45°. The binding was Smythe sewn.
