The Complete Book of Holograms: How They Work and How to Make Them by Joseph E. Kasper
This account of holography and its applications offers the novice a rigorous treatment of holographic theory and science with minimal reliance on mathematical explanation. It explains the geometric model of holography as well as the more elaborate diffraction model; describes various types of holograms and gives detailed instructions on how to make holograms and where to get the neccessary materials. Also covered are current and developing applications of holographic techniques in science, industry and the arts. Good illustrations, plus a list of sources for further study are included.
