Publisher: Adobe Press 2010 | 288 Pages | ISBN: 0321685369 | PDF | 12 MB
It's no mystery why InDesign has become the premier page layout program: It offers great tools, including friendly yet-sophisticated typographic controls. Here to show users how to take advantage of them is the long-awaited update to the book devoted solely to that topic. Everyone, from graphics pros migrating from QuarkXPress, to hobbyists producing fancy invites and book-length projects, will appreciate this guide's finely tuned focus on everything typographic. To take full advantage of InDesign's typographic tools, readers must understand the principles guiding their use. Author Nigel French recognizes this and addresses both the whys and the hows of good typography.
Using practical examples, loads of tips, and sidebars to provide additional detail, Nigel provides a comprehensive overview of all of InDesign's type features, including new features in InDesign CS5: the ability to have text span columns, custom borders on frames, live captions, Bridge integration, and the ability to track text changes. Starting with character formats and then moving through paragraph formats, styles and effects, and layouts, this book teaches all the skills users need to produce beautiful type.
