Frank Clicks Paper
Our colleague and collaborator Frank Romano recently reviewed and endorsed the book with his usual erudition and gravitas. The video is one of many on the WhatTheyThink website.
While you’re at it, take the time to become a member of WhatTheyThink, if you haven’t already done so.

In the News!
In May, Printing Impressions was gracious enough to do an interview coinciding with the book’s release. It’s about seven minutes long (I do love to talk,) but it does include a quick Clickable Paper demo. The original interview is on the magazine’s excellent vlog, PIXchange.
Schools are starting to order copies for the Fall semester, and printing companies and associations are considering it for their training programs. Exciting times!

A New Hybrid of Print & Digital Media
Introduction to Graphic Communication, first published in 2007, is a widely-used reference for our industry—but an update was overdue. This volume adds many new insights, as well as the developments and changes of the past ten years.
As well as updating the text, we have added integrated multimedia and peer-to-peer interaction, using technology from Ricoh, Viddler, and other sources. The book is designed to create a complete learning experience.
