This edition includes their trademark features: clear, concise, step-by-step instructions; hundreds of full-color illustrations; screen captures of program features; and supplemental tips and sidebars in every chapter.

This fully updated edition for Illustrator CC (2014 release) covers the new enhancements and features, including significant upgrades to the Pencil tool, Swatches panel, Artboard panel, as well as new Live Corners, reshaping methods, and much more.
