Overview

If youÕve studied vector-based drawing during the last decade, thereÕs a good chance that youÕve read The Illustrator Visual QuickStart Guide in one of its many iterations. Though this book has become the standard text in many design schools, it has evolved over the years along with the program itself. And with some of the radical changes in Illustrator 9 -- such as transparency, Flash output, the layers palette, and opacity masks -- the authors thoroughly revised this popular QuickStart Guide, as well. This newest edition includes over 100 additional pages on the latest features and a brand-new color section, as well as clearly marked locators to both new and improved features that can easily be found by simply flipping through the book. Best of all, it's delivered in a highly readable, entertaining, visual, and easy-to-navigate format. Whether you are a continuing user or new to Illustrator, this affordable, task-based book may be the only one you need to create powerful graphics for print or Web.
