THEPOWERXCHANGE PUBLISHES FIRST COMPREHENSIVE QUARKXPRESS 8 BOOKExtensive Collection of Tutorials Written By Industry experts (February 16, 2009)
Chapters include contributions from industry experts Joe Root, Kelly Kordes Anton, John Cruise, Trevor Alyn, Davina Hicks, Tom Kelly, Steve Gray, and Cyndie Shaffstall. These chapters were originally published as articles for X-Ray Magazine, but have been expanded to include step-by-step tutorials for nearly every feature. Whether you are a new user or a power user, this book will teach techniques that make you a better user.
Spiral bound for lay-flat use while following along, this book is well written and well presented. Generous graphics ensure that the reader can easily keep pace and manage the exercises whether or not they are new to QuarkXPress.
Editor, Cyndie Shaffstall, wrote QuarkXPress 8: a suite response, to introduce the new features of QuarkXPress 8 to anyone using or considering using QuarkXPress 8, and as she did that, she realized that most of the X-Ray Magazine articles contained a wealth of information and that they get requests every day for printed versions of the magazine. She felt that collecting and printing them made sense for both their magazine and for the reader. She feels that every QuarkXPress user will bookmark dozens of tips in these chapters.
With the in-depth tutorials, this is the perfect book for classrooms and training centers. Each topic is fully introduced and then described in numbered steps making it easy to follow along, or experiment as you go.
