DTP Principles guide book availableBy Chris Williams. Published: 27th Aug 2003, 15:53:25 | Permalink | Printable
Choice of a bonus CD-ROMEarlier this month, we learnt that RiscWorld readers got a free DTP guide book in the post. As of today, APDL/ProAction's book DTP Principles is available to all and you can pick a CD-ROM to go with it.
The guide was produced by Foundation editor Richard Hallas and includes topics from document structure to page design to font selection to the Golden Ratio rule. ProAction have billed their guide book as "a platform and software-independent guide to understanding some of the most important fundamentals of word processing and desktop publishing".
This isn't the first time ProAction have played publisher, having reprinted First steps in programming RISC OS computers.
When ordering a copy of their new DTP guide book, you can chose one of the following CDs..
- Ovation 1 CD (32bit safe). Ovation is the little brother of DTP package OvationPro.
- 75,000 clipart CD. A CD stuffed with WMF files that can apparently be converted into drawfile format. A drawfile ready version of the CD may be sold separately later, we're told.
- A CD of 5,000 photos in high quality JPEG format
- ..or what's in this box!
APDL/ProAction are selling copies of DTP Principles, which'll include one of the above CDs, for just six quid including postage and packaging.
To order, call them on 020 8778 2659. Don't ask about the box.

Midland Christmas show this Saturday
The Midland Christmas 2008 RISC OS show is fast approaching - pencil Saturday, December 6 in your diaries. For the organisers, the Midlands User Group, this is a big challenge. While they co-organised the last one with the ARM Club, the organisation for this year's event has been primarily a MUG affair.
