Product Description

From the Author

Why this is the BEST step-by-step guide to Illustrator 7...
Awarded the "Best computer-related book of 1997" bythe Publishers Marketing Association, The Illustrator 7 Wow! Book guides you through all aspects of Illustrator 7 step-by-step (at a "click-and-drag" level of detail), using the actual techniques of more than 100 of the nation's leading Illustrator artists. This beautiful book was created for beginning through professional Illustrator users and demonstrates an astonishing range of techniques and styles--from brush-and-ink to photorealism, from creative typography to animation. Lessons are short, so you can squeeze in a new technique between clients, or you can use the Illustrator 7 Wow! Book as the primary text in a classroom setting (a sample course outline is on the CD). Learn to "think" in Illustrator through the Zen of Illustrator chapter (and lessons on the CD), or start right in on the Advanced Techniques. The Illustrator 7 Wow! Book is also the most honest book on Illustrator 7--in addition to teaching you how to harness the power of Illustrator, you'll also learn about workarounds and problem-solving techniques you won't find anywhere else. The Mac/Windows CD-ROM is PACKED with additional lessons, tips, resources, freebies and demos, as well as Mac Wow! QuicKeys that can even restore Illustrator 6 keystrokes! Full color.

The "real deal". An industrial strength "how to" for the serious computer artist and graphics illustrator... Sharon's master piece is a gem.
As director of Desktop America a NYC, computer graphics school in NYC, I insist all my Illustrator students use Sharon's Illustrator 7.0 WOW book... We use the tips and techniques in our course outlines and portfolio project development. WOW 7.0 is direct and to the point, "expert how to examples", "a real industry staple" - save time creating professional vector based graphics and get this book

2.0 out of 5 stars Thin. 3 July 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I was very disappointed by the content of this book. Especially since I had gotten a lot of use out of the Wow!Photoshop book. Very little linear direction and a less than intuitive cd make this book a reference for ideas or tips but certainly not a tutorial. And now that I have learned Illustrator I can't imagine why I would need it. Also, the fall back line used liberally throughout "this is covered in the Illustrator manual" was like a teacher reminding you that you should have done your homework. P-U!

4.0 out of 5 stars Colorful and explanator 22 May 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I found this book to be a great aid when I was stuck on certain points. Some information is left out, but only because there is so much content to begin with. Not for the beginner but possibly the intermediate. The CD enclosed is packed with clip art and actual work done by professionals. I can only dream of becoming that good, but with the help of Illustrator WOW! it can become a reality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Advanced Artist Need Only Apply! 10 April 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is full of information, but only useful if you are familiar with Adobe Illustrator. It can be very confusing to the beginner. If you are somewhat experienced with Adobe Illustrator, this book can be very helpful to get to the next level. If you are a beginner, stay away. Try Real World Illustrator 7 instead, it is much more basic in its approach.

Sharon Steuer has gathered an incredible array of artists and painstakingly dissected their work. Even if you only learn one or two techniques from this book, you can turn yourself into a professional artist making big $$$.
