5-0 out of 5 stars True inspiration, great tool!
this book is really a manual for me, i keep it with me at all times and just look at it sometimes, the colors provide inspiration, the combinations take me to other places, the make me think, they are a true inspiration and a great tool to find solutions when you're stock, take it from a Graphic design student, you'll love to have this book. For color theory not so good you might want to get something that covers color theory in detail, this is just an index as said on the tittle. but even if you know nothing about color at all, you will still find it amazingly useful!

5-0 out of 5 stars Thank goodness for books like this!
I love the resource this book provides in the creative and graphic aspect of my work.Designers of all media should have this book handy. I don't let it go too far,CAUTION: YOUR FRIENDS WILL STEAL THIS BOOK.
5-0 out of 5 stars If you're a graphic designer buy this book
I just got my first graphic design job three months ago and once I got this book both my employer and I noticed a huge difference in my work.The most helpful thing about this book is the color coding for HTML, RGB and CYMK but aside from the codes the color combinations are very helpful, especially for a beginning graphic designer.Well worth the cover price, and the turtleback cover will ensure the binding's integrity after much usage and for many years to come. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for beginner....Not for advanced
This book is truely for beginners who have no clue of signal Integrity. He starts this book with stuff like Ohm's law and how capacitors and inductors work which most people learn in high school.
5-0 out of 5 stars Probably the most readable book you'll find on this
Brook's book is exceptional in the clarity of the writing, esp. in explaining key concepts that most engineers are fuzzy on.This book is great at giving engineers an intuitive feel for basic electromagnetics and how it relates to signal integrity and emi.4-0 out of 5 stars A chasm has been bridged...
As an educator, lecturer and practicing designer I am given many books to read and make comment on. I find very few books that are able to bridge the chasm between the needs of a beginner learning about signal integrity and the needs of a professional desperate to solve design problems. This book is an excellent primer and reference for understanding the interrelationship between the board layout and the signal integrity problem. This book details design solutions to classic signal integrity problems and educates the novice in understanding the reasoning behind the solutions. There is a lot of nonsense being written about signal integrity and few people have the resources to filter out the chaff from hay. This book proves every principle presented with tested board layouts, demonstrated engineering principles, or documented laboratory results. Some people can see the world in formulas and some see the world pictorially. This book is rich in both forms of expressionism and its presentation will not exasperate the PCB designer who sees the world visually, or frustrate the engineer seeking equations for design representation. This book has been added to the required reading list for our PCB layout designers and product development engineering teams. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Resource
The reality is that lots of graphic designers don't have formal design training, which can result in a problematic lack of production and printing knowledge. This book is easy to read (in a day), thoughtfully illustratrated, and covers the most important productino and printing issues that a designer should be aware of.
5-0 out of 5 stars New to print? You need this book
I know a teeny tiny bit of print. Spot colours - hmm I did know that one, but since I don't do much print (or haven't til this year) I was always at a loss when it came ready for the printer.This book is an essential guide for the non print designer.

5-0 out of 5 stars George DeWolfe's Digital Photography Fine Print Workshop
Excellent book. I have many books on digital photography and this book ranks very high. Excellent work flow recommendations and clearly written. This book will also be used as a reference text in a photography course I will be taking. I have almost completed reading the entire book and making notes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Yes, photography can be an art
Too much emphasis is being made on the technology of digital photography, and even on the mechanics of taking pictures.Just as important is the artistic factor, which is often not even addressed in books that teach Photoshop.This book is an exception.You'll learn how to adjust the feeling and artistic approach of an image to create photographic art out of a simple digital photograph.If you want to learn more about the aesthetics of creating a digital image, this book is for you.

4-0 out of 5 stars Having taken the workshop...
...I can recommend this book to anyone wishing to simplify CS2 and achieve great results. Yes, the book does have a few problems as outlined by another reviewer and I will leave it at that. There are many, many tools available to the photographer in PS - too many in my opinion. George will guide the reader through adjustments in RAW, the usual histogram changes, etc. and then will detail the history brush. If you have never used this tool then the book is worth the money. In many cases when trying to dodge and burn you can damage the original image if not careful. Using the history brush changes all that with more precise corrections and more control over the results. If you are not shooting RAW, you will be and you'll know why after reading this book. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars A Cancer upon American Letters
Knowing that I go against the current strain of popular thought, I am writing to urge people not to buy this error-laden work of fools.The Chicago Manual of Style has done more to devalue American writing than anything other than the educational cutbacks initiated in the early 80's by the Reagan administration.Many of the "rules" expounded in the Chicago Manual of Style are in direct contradiction to accepted convention; to name just two examples, the placement of a serial comma before the "and" and the addition of an "s" following the apostrophe in a possessive already ending in "s."5-0 out of 5 stars Putting the Exceptions Where they Belong

Editorial Review

One of the problems with Unix is its spotty support for printers. Before the advent of the Common Unix Printing System (CUPS), a particular printer needed a driver for, say, System V Unix, and a separate driver for FreeBSD. The problem has become particularly pronounced now that Linux is becoming more popular as a desktop operating system, where it competes with Windows and other operating systems under which printer installation is pretty easy. CUPS installs on all major Unix and Linux flavors, and handles the interface between printer and operating system. Driver writers can, therefore, write for CUPS and not worry about what's underneath.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best intro to the history of printing
Chappell and Bringhurst have put together an informative, enjoyable book on printed text. It starts with a brief history of writing in general, then of the Roman alphabet now used for most European languages. Along the way, we see a few hints about the history of page layout and other typographic concerns. The book devotes a few pages to the skilled craft of punch-cutting, of carving the steel stamps that represented the master copies from which metal type was replicated.

5-0 out of 5 stars SHE NAILED IT. THIS BOOK IS FANTASTIC.
I've been design print material on the desktop for almost two decades and I wish I had this book since my first day.EVERYONE WHO WORKS WITH DESKTOP PUBLISHING SHOULD HAVE THIS BOOK AT THEIR SIDE.The author really knows what designers go through, and really knows her stuff. As I was reading it, I couldn't help but mutter aloud every few pages, "Wow! This is great advice!" It's like Claudia McCue was sitting next to me during all the DTP issues I've ever had-- and answered all my questions.And, she's not application-isolated in her approach... the author writes separate chapters for each major DTP app and intertwines hints when necessary.If you're not learning lots of new things from this book, you're not from this planet. I love this resource, and I'll be referring to it often!

5-0 out of 5 stars Must have for graphic artists
I've been in graphic art business for 30years and I still learned a few things from this book. Its a must have for the new digital world. If you want to make your life easier and avoid costly mistakes you must read this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars "Perfect Pages": a clear and accessible guide for book creation
I enjoyed Aaron Shepard's "Perfect Pages", a clear and accessible guide for book creation using Microsoft Word instead of expensive publishing software. Shepard shows that Word actually has some advantages for publishers, tells how to make Word do what's needed, while avoiding some of Word's hazards. Thus the book delivers worthwhile Word tips for novices and experts alike---and there are more web resources at the end of the book---but it's more than that, because a book is more than a manuscript: it has to look good and read easily. "Perfect Pages" covers the details (fonts, typography, trim sizes, formatting, covers, generating PDF files, common errors . . .), showing how to make manuscripts into attractive and readable books. The book provides the ideal bridge between a Word software manual and a publishing manual (such as Morris Rosenthal's) that teaches business and strategic decisions. "Perfect Pages" is a gracefully written book that wastes few words, and minces none.

Luckily, I found Aaron's ebook on Amazon and it made it possible for me to use Word and create a professional book that was accepted by the bookstores (they have a very high standard for quality print work). Now that I'm working on my second self-published book, I'm happy to see that Aaron's ebook has been updated in a paperback format. Just like the ebook, this book is essential for learning how to use Word to professionally produce your book.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide
Like Shepard's Books, Typography, and Microsoft Word, this much-expanded version is a first-rate, user-friendly guide to designing and typesetting your book in Word. Anyone who's planning to self-publish a book will find helpful material here, particularly the sections on optimizing Word's settings to produce reliable PDF files that can be used by both POD (print-on-demand) and traditional printing services. Shepard's design advice is sound and concise; it'll help you avoid all the mistakes novice typesetters are prone to. He's especially good on the differences between the various Word programs--he covers recent versions for both Windows and Mac, and he's one of the very few who knows what EVERY setting on the file-compatibility tab does and doesn't do. He also offers some advance info about what is likely to change when Word 2006 is released. In short, this book is well worth buying--it will save you both time and money whether you're self-publishing a book, doing academic typesetting (where Word's ability to handle footnotes makes it a better choice than some page-layout programs), or just find you've been spending too much time trying to figure out how to tweak Word's settings to get the results you want. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars From good to great!
This book helped me to go from being a good amateur photographer to a great amateur photographer.Each of the 107 chapters provides a short lesson for you to read and digest, before going out to practice with your own digital camera and computer.It took me about 3 months to finish the book, and a year later I still refer back to it from time to time.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good photo guide
This book gives you some very good tips on how to improve your photographs.Excellent help with photo shop, (better than the photo shop help).The best part about this book and author is that if you have any questions, you can email Mr. Sammons.I had some questions about other bookshe has written and emailed him expecting not to hear back for several weeks.He responded the next day!

4-0 out of 5 stars A clear exposé of the science and concepts of color management
Understanding Color Management explains the basics of color, and the methodology of ICC profiles which the ICC (International Color Consortium) has developed to allow colors to be reproduced with fidelity by computing devices.
5-0 out of 5 stars Understanding Color Management
The title "Understanding Color Management" is a very appropriate. The list of books and papers on colour management is getting quite long by now, but this is in my view the first one to be really thorough, clear and in depth.Read more
