Creating PDF Forms for Government. This book is FREE. You can download a PDF version from this web site or an iOS version from the Apple Store.

Adobe Illustrator Illuminated. Barbara Obermeier and I co-authored this book several years ago and the Illustrator screens are quite dated. The value in this book is not using the tools and commands per se, it's real value is interview responses we had from many famous Illustrator artists on how they approach a design project from concept development through completion. It's one of my favorite books.
