Illustrator Type Magic
by Greg Simsic
Illustrator Type Magic gives you "a compilation of special effects for creating display type in Adibe Illustrator." Yes, there is an introductory chapter on Illustrator basics, but this is not a book on how to use Illustrator. This is a road map to making very cool type effects.
The CD has the usual demo programs, some nice stock images, and a great collection of freeware and shareware fonts. If you use Illustrator and you're dying to make jazzy type, buy Illustrator Type Magic.
