The Box Arrives

Whenever I get back from a conference, I either bring back or immediately buy several books. They’ll either be books by a particularly good speaker, or that a speaker or conference attendee has mentioned and recommended. Well, the first batch arrived today.

Hot on the heels of Ben Willmore’s amazing all-day Photoshop sessions at the Creative Suite Conference, I now have his Photoshop CS2: Up to Speed book, which covers just the new features in CS2. So it’s great if you haven’t had time to discover them all on your own, or if you’re a CS-certified expert looking to study up for your re-certification on the new version.

The other book in the package is Nigel French’s InDesign Type: Professional Typography with Adobe InDesign CS2. I’ve had my eye on this one since well before the conference, and then it was mentioned several times by different presenters, so I finally broke down and ordered it.

I’ve already got two other books in my cart after I’ve made it through these two. I’ll keep everyone posted on what I think about all of them.

    How is the InDesign Type book? I was hoping to check it out at Barnes & Nobles, but they didnt have it, so I may have to order it.

  2. I was just thinking today that I have to do a follow-up post on this one. I absolutely LOVE the InDesign Type book. It is an amazing resource. Full of great information, not just about InDesign, but with all of the sensibility of “old school” typography to back it up. It’s very clear, concise, and as well designed as it is written.
