In The Illustrator 10 Wow! Book, a diverse cast of artists share both their work and the hands-on techniques behind each piece. Follow along as more than 100 of the country's top Illustrator artists take you on a beautiful, inspirational tour of the latest Illustrator features and how to use them, dispensing hundreds of hard-won tips and savvy shortcuts along the way. The Illustrator 10 Wow! Book covers the entire spectrum, from the basics to the sophisticated, making it a must-have for beginners and professionals alike.
Once again, author Sharon Steuer and her team have gathered a thoughtfully edited collection of artwork and techniques that showcases the creative possibilities of Illustrator and how to realize them using the program's powerful arsenal of tools. Updated for Illustrator 10, this edition holds new transparency lessons and covers, in detail, how to construct images with live Pathfinders and Compound Shapes; how to work with envelopes, warps, and symbols; and more. Some things never change: Each chapter still includes lush, full-color galleries of the contributing artists' work, and the accompanying CD-ROM holds the actual files behind many of the works found in the book so you can pick them apart and follow along, plus custom Wow! actions and brushes, clip art, demos, and other Illustrator goodies that you can add to your own virtual studio.
Sharon Steuer has taught computer imaging in art schools and trainingcenters throughout the country. Her paintings and illustrations have appeared in numerous books and magazines and have been exhibited nationally. She is the author of all four previous editions of this book.

The Illustrator Wow book is one of the best resources EVER for any artist or designer who wants to create illustrations, designs, or graphics.
First of all, the artwork is exceptional. Just leafing through the pages becomes an inspriational lesson as to what sort of great graphics are being creating using computers and vector programs. I was totally blown away by some of the artists (yes, REAL artists) who are featured. Ms. Steuer shows examples from artists I have seen mentioned in award show books. Just to see this artwork up close is a benefit, but to then follow the step by step tutorials on how to make the techniques is worth ten times what the book costs.
One thing you have to watch out for. If you are a beginner, don't just plop yourself into the middle of the book and expect to follow the sophisticated lessons. You need to work through the introductory chapters to get a handle on what the program does and how the book works. I promise you, just a few minutes with the beginning chapters will change your whole perception of how the book works.
This is probably the best version of the Illustrator Wow book yet. Just like Illustrator 10 has blown away all the competition, so the Illustrator 10 Wow book stands apart from all the other books out there.
It did have very good drawing exercises. It also had good ideas. Too bad I couldn't figure out QUICKLY how to use them. (Painfully - yes)
In terms of background I have worked through "Illustrator 10 -Classroom in a book" (vastly superior) and have taken 2 entry level Illustrator 10 classes.
Definately glad that I checked this book out of the library before wasting cash on it.
