About This Class

This is a class on how to use Adobe Indesign and Blurb.com to design and print a book. Adobe InDesign is the industry standard for designing publications and Blurb.com is a print on demand book publisher. You can order just one book, or 300, so this makes it perfect for printing beautiful books for a very affordable price. This class will walk you through downloading and installing plugins, assigning an ICC color profile to your images, choosing typefaces, creating the pages and the cover, and finally uploading your book to be printed.
