Great help for a beginner! June 22, 2011
by
This textbook provides new Illustrator users with a well-balanced, reliable and fairly in-depth introduction to the program's main features. The textbook comes with a CD that contains all the files needed for following along and completing each of the hands-on examples in the textbook. Highly recommended for beginners, and for those who are upgrading to Illustrator from an older package and want a refresher.
