Our customer reviews

I bought this book to get a clear overview of the tools and practices of using Illustrator. The book is clear and concise with its instructions and its use of clear images to further back up the explanations. The tutorials range from a more basic approach of the program to the more advanced combination of Illustrator with other Adobe programs. This book is a great introduction, yet i found myself wishing the book could have detailed more intricate concepts.
