Part: III Appendixes > Book Recommendations

Book Recommendations

I don't read books on the subject of software, so I'm not the best person to ask for book recommendations (you already bought my book, so that recommendation is out). However, there are a few I urge every graphic designer or illustrator to own.

  • The Elements of Graphic Design, by Alex W. White. Allworth Press (ISBN 1581152507).

  • The Mac Is Not A Typewriter, by Robin Williams. Peachpit Press (ISBN 0201782634).

  • Inside the Publishing Revolution: The Adobe Story, by Pamela Pfiffner. Adobe Press (ISBN 0321115643).

  • Pocket Pal, by International Paper. (http://www.internationalpaper.com/paper/paper%20products/Pocket%20Pal%20Home.html). This is an incredible quick-reference handbook for anyone in a for-press workflow.

  • Real World: Color Management, by Fraser, Murphy, and Bunting. Peachpit Press (ISBN 0321267222).

  • Real World: Scanning & Halftones, by Blatner, Fleishman, Roth, and Chavez. Peachpit Press (ISBN 0321241320).

  • And, of course, Adobe Illustrator CS2 @work: Projects You Can Use On the Job is only one book in the @work series. Look for Adobe InDesign CS2 @work, Adobe Photoshop CS2 @work, and others from Sams Publishing.
