Good one for people wanting to learn AICS2
on 25 October 2005
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).
