Newsletter Design: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creative Publications Reviews
This book is very useful and I use it as a guide when producing newsletters for my campus. The author's tone is a bit high-handed but the information is invaluable. There are examples of styles and set-ups for very fine standard styles. Not anything cutting-edge in it, though. The author is thorough in language useage and styles. Lots of what not to dos in here.
The book was old, from 1995, with black and white photos of little visual interest. I assumed it might be a book that was up-to-date with compelling photos and visual design.
