This is a book of full-color illustrations intended for use as a companion to Agricultural Production Economics, Second Edition. Each of the 98 pages of illustrations is a large, full-color version of the corresponding numbered figure in the book Agricultural Production Economics. The illustrations are each a labor of love by the author representing a combination of science and art. They combine modern computer graphics technologies with the author’s skills as both as a production economist and as a graphics artist. Technologies used in making the illustrations trace the evolution of computer graphics over the past 30 years. Many of the hand-drawn illustrations were initially drawn using the Draw Partner routines from Harvard Graphics(R). Wire-grid 3-D illustrations were created using SAS Graph(R). Some illustrations combine hand-drawn lines using Draw Partner and the draw features of Microsoft PowerPoint(R) with computer-generated graphics from SAS(R). As a companion text to Agricultural Production Economics, Second Edition, these color figures display the full vibrancy of the modern production theory of economics.
