Real World InDesign CS5 Off to Press
People have long told me that they consider the book Real World InDesign to be the “bible” of InDesign… I always wince slightly as there is another book that technically calls itself the bible for InDesign. (Not to mention the other biblical books from one wisdom tradition or another. After all, I’m the co-author of Judaism for Dummies, but I’m currently reading the Baghadvad Gita and I have about 8 different “bibles” on my shelves. But I digress. A lot.)
So, given the number of emails I’ve received from people over the past few months asking about the release of Real World InDesign CS5, I’m very pleased to announce that it’s finally about to head to press. In fact, I just now received the just-about-final cover proof (see above). Snazzy!
Of course, if you can’t wait, much of the book is already available at CreativeEdge.com as a “Rough Cut”! The formatting of these “rough cuts” is not the same as the final printed book, but it’s not terrible.
Note that Ole and I have a brand new co-author on this edition: Bob Bringhurst. Many of you know Bob’s work already: He has been the lead documentation writer on InDesign since the beginning! He also has a great blog at Adobe.com. It was an absolute pleasure working with Bob, who is knowledgeable, creative, and a great writer and editor.
Real World InDesign CS5 is currently available for pre-order at Amazon USA, your local bookstore, and elsewhere! (Older editions can be found there, too, of course, or at my friend Glenn’s price comparison site: isbn.nu)
