Digital Mona Lisa

found via Boing-Boing

Digital Mona Lisa is an extraordinary example of computer graphics from a bygone digital time. This image represents state of the art computer graphic rendering for the time of it’s creation, 1965. The condition is outstanding and of museum quality.

An early (the first?) line-printer printed digitized “computer picture” (although Ted Nelson has a problem with this term).
