This just in -- The Adobe Illustrator CS2 Wow! Book has won DT&G's 2005 "Special Distinction" Award!
Congratulations to Sharon Steuer and the entire Wow team! As you may know, Sharon and I embarked upon a partnership where some Real World content was published in her Wow! book, and likewise, some Wow! content was published in Real World Adobe Illustrator CS2 (mainly, the 16-page color insert).
And the cool part is that Real World Illustrator CS2 gets an honorable mention in the award! The actual announcement reads as follows:
"Year after year, upgrade after upgrade, Sharon Steuer consistently brings the very finest compendium on Adobe Illustrator available. While other WOW books and Bibles fade into dust, Sharon brings Illustrator users everywhere the WOW they need. We're not even going to take you to our review -- it's that good. Just go ahead and buy it now -- and if you buy this one along with the Real World Adobe Illustrator CS2 book, you'll have everything you need to take you all the way to master status."
