Dear User Group members,
Here in Cali, the weather is starting to warm up, and my mind drifts to being outdoors and having fun in the sun. But actually we're keeping the temperature indoors just as warm with some sizzling new titles this month!
Hot off the press is David duChemin's Within the Frame, an inspirational photography book about capturing the spirit and flavor of a culture and place.
Yes We Did! by Rahaf Harfoush, a member of the Obama campaign's New Media Team, provides the ultimate social marketing case study!
Funny lady Sandee Cohen is back to make the world of prepress a little less confusing, and there are a few iLife 09 books now available. Enjoy!
