Review:

The CorelDraw Wow Book, a four-color guide to CorelDraw, helps users of every level of expertise learn how to create superb, unique artwork. The book is divided into basic categories--drawing, coloring, transforming, adding dimension, working with type, and preparing artwork for the Web. Each category contains discrete tasks (broken down into individual steps) that help you with features, design techniques, and shortcuts.

For example, the chapter on color has a number of sections that help you use tools like texture, pattern, and fountain fills, as well as creating shimmering color, building a shine, and using blends. You'll find that this book is more than just a substitute for the CorelDraw manual. Within every individual task explained in the book, the authors use the work of a real artist as an example and show you what this artist did to produce the effect in question, including the combinations of features and techniques that helped produce such unique artwork.

Each chapter ends with a gallery of professional-quality artwork and an explanation of everything the artist did, from beginning scan to final color tweaking. There are dozens of contributing artists, and the appendix contains their contact information should you want to learn more.

The book covers versions 3 through 8 of the CorelDraw software, a smart move since even some of the older versions still have their share of devotees. The companion CD-ROM has demos of multiple versions of CorelDraw, sample artwork, fonts, and stock photos, as well as other third-party graphics software. --Kathleen Caster

From the Back Cover:

artists and designers of all abilities. Readers have come to expect not only eminently practical advice on using the software, but also creative new techniques and solutions developed by working professionals and full-color galleries of their artwork. The CorelDRAW Wow! Book extends this unique approach to one of the most popular graphics applications of all time.

Whatever your skill level, you'll find results-oriented advice that you can apply to your own projects. Using the highest-quality professional CorelDRAW art as examples, the authors provide step-by-step instructions for techniques that showcase the latest features in CorelDRAW while providing workarounds for earlier versions of the program. The CorelDraw Wow! Book also comes with a CD-ROM that includes some of the inspiring artwork you'll find throughout the book. That way, you can dissect the examples and see up close what went into these creations.
