If you're serious about learning desktop publishing, and you see THIS Robin Williams' name (as opposed to Mork), do yourself a favor and buy it, along with the Non-Designer's series she has authored or co-authored: Typography, Design, Illustrator, InDesign. Very helpful examples and exercises. As opposed to the nuts & bolts of these programs, these books address principles and theory, to help the reader develop higher reasoning powers in these fields.
