Must read for all MS Windows programmers.


This book is very good. I definitely recommend it for all programmers (Delphi, Visual basic etc). It explains the inner workings of the Windows family, and even though the examples are in C, they will prove to be of value to all programmers.

Much ado about....


Maybe it's just me, but as a practical reference I have not found this book to be worth much. Every time I go to it for information on something non-graphics related I find either nothing at all or very skimpy treatment -which is saying something in a book this size. I guess I should have know when I saw the way the XML documenting feature of C# was covered -which was a statement that it was great, but he was not going to cover it. Beyond that he seems to assume some prior knowledge of C++ or C. Hope this works for you if you buy it, it has not done much for me.

Required Reading for UCLA Extensions Class


I am teaching a course at UCLA Extension's Graphic Arts Department called "Mastering Fine Art Printing" and this is THE textbook that we use. With the release of this book, I now have a solid reference point for the material that I present in the course. I'm glad that Johnson has included the many facets of fine art printing because so many people have no idea that a revolution is taking place in the fine art community.
This book provides a great starting for both beginning and advanced printmakers. Johnson exhaustive research and insight make this book a must have for anyone wanting to take their fine art printmaking to the next level. There is plenty of practical information that is easy to follow and will definately help your abiltiy to create great prints.
