After reading “Inkscape 0.48 Essentials for Web Designers“, I then encountered this book, “Inkscape 0.48 Illustrator’s Cookbook” by Mihaela Jurković, and I must say, this is one of the best book learning this wonderful cross-platform application.
While the first book is mainly more for web designers, this book focuses on broader aspect of Inkscape, from creating basic objects to live path effects and guides of using current extensions. The book are aimed at the beginner with no previous experience of vector graphics design. Throughout the pages, the book provides fundamental knowledge in details, from getting to know the interface, command short-cuts, up to the keen concepts of speeding up your workflow.
As with the popularity of Inkscape and vector graphics increases , getting the edge of this application is must and “Inkscape 0.48 Illustrator’s Cookbook” delivers it best.
Vector graphics are becoming increasingly important at the turn of this decade, now that theWorld Wide Web has begun its transition towards HTML5 technologies. All the major Webbrowsers are striving to conform to the SVG specification, as the attractiveness of scalable, high definition, three-dimensional, and Flash-free Web sites and games is irresistible. Thefuture is bright, but the true outcome will ultimately depend on one decisive factor: user and developer adoption.
The best things about this book, is how it guides the reader in doing things with Inkscape, after stating the overview of the operation, it follows with “How to do it” part, which gives the step by step procedure and then goes with “How it works“, for the the teaching style is very effective both for starter and experienced Inkscape users.
To sum all up, “Inkscape 0.48 Illustrator’s Cookbook” is a great tool in learning this vector graphics designer application. Good for “want to learn” and “want to learn more” types of people.
