With InDesign CS quickly becoming the new king of the desktop publishing hill, there's no shortage of books promising to get you up to speed it. None, however, does so quite like this one, which keeps the focus right where you, as a designer, want it--on designing! Providing just enough theoretical grounding to use the program effectively but omitting the tech-heavy under-the hood discussions that represent the core of other InDesign tomes, this full-color guide uses gorgeous real-world examples and simple step-by-step instructions to cover all of InDesign CS' features, including its newest: the Story Editor, a Separation Preview palette, nested styles, the Package for GoLive command, and more. As you work through chapters on text and typography, pages and documents, placed images, tables, color, special effects, multimedia, preflighting, and more, you'll quickly master both the InDesign basics you need to get your job done and the advanced techniques that will give your pages that extra flair! A companion CD includes lesson files plus style sheets, templates, graphic libraries, images, and more!
