Product Description


"What a great little book! The short, concentrated explanations are an ideal reference for students. Comprehensive coverage of the subject. An ideal pocket guide..." Rhiannon Robinson, University of Cumbria, UK. "I think this book is a great technical resource ... Written in a conversational manner which makes it very easy to engage and digest - perfect for the student audience." Terry Elkins, Grant MacEwan University, Canada. "I have the Visual Dictionary of Graphic Design, so I knew that this would follow the same format. An excellent visual descriptor plus straightforward text just right for finding out or just reminding yourself of important things every level of student should know or begin to know." Vicki Winteringham, Norwich University College of the Arts, UK. "The practical terms chosen are spot on for students just learning the production terminology for printing." Elsi Vassdal Ellis, Western Washington University, USA.

HASH(0xa4fc599c) out of 5 stars A Dictionary with a Twist! Aug. 24 2010
By Ro5ie - Published on
Format: Paperback
This dictionary is a useful tool for anyone going into journalism, media, publishing or graphic design. Dividing the dictionary into the categories of Design, Screen, Printing and Finishing was a great idea, and meant I could flick to the section I needed easily. I found the inclusion and explanation of digital and web processes very relevant; the dictionary gives contemporary examples, which results in a feeling of authenticity. A great book - I've not come across anything else like this.

HASH(0xa4f9f414) out of 5 stars Amazon has a great selection of college Textbooks! March 18 2013
By Ann W Compton - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was responsible for providing my granddaughter's textbooks and I shopped around online for books (new or in good used condition) at reasonable prices. Campus bookstores are there to make money and no bargains are to be found there, so I shopped online. This was the best deal I could find for this textbook.
