In the fast moving world of PC graphics technologies, the old standbys are now the new residents of the bit bucket. Expert practitioner McClelland keeps those of us who remember the good old days in mind, however, and his text supports those in transition as well as those new to the field in his examples and structuring; the materials, including two hours of video on the accompanying DVD, work together to personalize the learning experience. McClelland is also realistic about the varying levels of real talent out there, as well as the varying levels of formal education and training in page design and layout as he guides readers through starting a document, creating and flowing text, basic formatting, lists and tables, drawing, working with art, effects, style sheets, pages and layers, XML, long documents, hyperlinks, bookmarks, PDF, and output. This could double as a classroom text as well as a self-study guide. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
