Learn Illustrator from former Adobe product manager, Ted Alspach!
If you want to learn Illustrator CS5 inside and out, what better source than a former member of the Illustrator product team at Adobe? Ted Alspach originally wrote the first Illustrator Bible because he couldn't find a book on the subject that was comprehensive enough to suit him—so he created one! In this newest edition, you'll find the in-depth coverage you need, from Illustrator basics to producing striking effects with vectors and rasters, and much more.
