Product Description

From the Back Cover

How often have you wished you had access to the team behind your favorite software--in this case, Adobe Illustrator--so that you could really pick their brains about all of its coolest features? With this book, you do. In these pages the Adobe Creative Team gives you a guided tour of the graphics powerhouse, Illustrator CS. Best of all, it does so at your pace. Whether your beautifully designed graphics end up in print, the Web, broadcast video, or even cell phone displays, this book shows you how to get them there--easily, elegantly, and efficiently. You'll find step-by-step, project-based lessons in all of Illustrator's key features, including those that are new to CS: powerful new type tools, the Scribble Effect, hundreds of professionally designed templates, support for 3D graphics, and more. Each chapter contains a project that builds on your growing knowledge of the program, and a companion CD includes all the files needed to complete the book's lessons.

About the Author

They work closely with the Adobe product development teams and Adobe's Instructional Communications team to come up with creative, challenging, and visually appealing projects to help both new and more experienced users get up to speed quickly on Adobe software products.

Format: Paperback
Quite a good book written by Adobe's own staff explain how Adobe Illustrator and the new features on CS2 work, fits perfectly with a beginner and teaches some tricks to intermediate users but it's useless for a expert.
This is not a tutorial book on how to do stunning graphics and effects, infact all the graphics used in the book are rather simple. So this is a book for learning Illustrator features and how they are used, and it sure does a good job at it explaining you the basics all the way up to more complex commands and tasks.
The only two things I don't like on this book are the missing information bits (for example no word on the live text envelopes that was on of the great features introduced in CS1) and the lack of extras on the CD (besides all files to use on each lesson there isn't much more, some fonts, sample artwork and even some extra templates from Adobe would be nice).

Format: Paperback
I bought both this book and the Photoshop version and they are both really useful. I am a complete beginner and while I do use the lessons in the book, I can also flick through and find quick answers to my questions.

I chose this book because of the lesson CD they include and I haven't been disappointed. Each lesson incorporates different techniques so you don't get bored and it really does mimic how you would use Illustrator for your own projects.

The prose is easy to follow and it has screenshots to go along with the explanations so you don't get lost.

This book will absolutely teach you everything you need to know to be fully competent at illustrator CS. It is useful to be quite computer literate and to have had experience with other programmes as this definitely speeds up the learning process but even with only basic skills you muddle through. The disc included makes manipulation of the programme easy and encourages a systematic approach to one's progress.
Overall this is a great book that will teach you to produce the highest quality illustrations.
