The Barnes & Noble Review
Mastery is the moment when your tools no longer get in the way of your talent, but rather become an extension of your creativity. Unlike the mysteries of talent, mastery of Illustrator 10 can be roughly defined: it consists of gaining comfort with some 140 essential tasks. Spend a few hours with Illustrator and a copy of Teach Yourself VISUALLY Illustrator 10, and you can get there.

This full color book teaches Illustrator step by step, and visually. In addition to a prodigious number of sample images, there are over 500 screen captures walking you through each technique. Neatly written sidebars explain the concepts you need to understand -- especially those that are easiest to confuse.

The authors take you through all of Illustrator's key features, old and new. Palettes, paths, and objects, yes, but also Illustrator's new Symbols, which let you create repeating graphics without generating humongous file. Color, type, layers, yes, but also Illustrator's new liquefy, envelope, and warping tools. Print, yes, but Web, too -- including the new Flash export features. Read it, try it, master it.
