Two New Blender Books at Packt Publishing

Packt Publishing has two new Blender Books available for order. I have a copy of each on it’s way and they should be here in the next week (more or less 😛 ). Once I have them in my hot little hands, I will be reading and then reviewing both books. So stay tuned for those reviews within the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, here are links to the two new books and a general overview of their contents. Both books have links to their table of contents as well as sample chapter downloads.
