This wasn't a book you really read. This was a book about graphic design so the pictures and captions took preeminence over content.

It was however, a good book. I don't think of myself as having an eye for design but it was basic enough that I could follow along. It had multiple "Projects" which gave complete template instructions for newsletters, announcements, etc.

Overall, this book was worth my time to read as it got my mind thinking more like a designer, and provided several usable projects and examples. I'm hanging on to my library copy as a long as I am allowed, referencing it as needed. If you're in any place where you regularly create any sort of documents, it's worth a quick "read" through. Enjoy the pictures too!
