Description

  • Shows graphic designers how to get up to speed quickly on the latest InDesign release, make the most of program tools, create great page designs, add sparkle, and output to a variety of media
  • The authors, both Quark experts who've converted to InDesign, offer special tips and insights to Quark users who are making (or thinking of making) the switch to InDesign
