    Abstract

    Although handbooks on image processing depict texture as an important characteristic for various applications, handbooks on texture analysis are rare. Two exceptions are the books of Pietikainen (2000) and Petrou and Sevilla (2006). With the Handbook of Texture Analysis by Majid Mirmehdi, Xianghua Xie, and Jasjit Suri, a new one is launched, which aims to "bring together a collection of defining works that span the breadth of knowledge in texture analysis" (p. v). This review discusses how far this aim has indeed been achieved.
