HTML5 Canvas is an exciting new browser capability that allows the display of text, objects, images, video and animation on designated areas of a web page, all without the use of additional plug-ins. Canvas areas are specified using the HTML <canvas> tag and JavaScript is used to control the Canvas area display. 

This book covers all the basics needed to design and develop your own Canvas displays.
