Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Williams is famous for her "nondesigner" books for those of us struggling with a late-life conversion to the multimedia arts of graphic design in our Internet-obsessed worlds. This outstanding title from Williams and Cohen, graphics coordinator for the New School Computer Instruction Center in New York, guides the reader through the process of dealing with page-layout programs, scanning and digital cameras, prepress preparation, and either selecting desktop printing or sending electronic files to service bureaus and print shops. Nothing fancy, just excellent instruction for new designers using either Mac or Windows. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

Sandee Cohen is by far one of the best instructors one could ever encounter in one's lifetime. Her instructions are full of easy to remember tips, a through understanding of the subject and a way of looking that unlocks doors for everyone.
