Press release from the issuing company
Bainbridge Island, Wash. – Georgia Southern University and Illinois State University are the latest adopters of Introduction to Graphic Communication (www.igcbook.com). They join a growing number of nationally recognized universities offering degrees in graphic arts and related areas. The textbook is the first to use Ricoh’s Clickable Paper technology to access videos and other related learning material.
Pat McGrew of Print Sample TV said that Introduction to Graphic Communication “shows how Augmented Reality can tell additional stories as opposed to what is printed in the book…It extends print into other ways of communicating.”
One Book, Multiple Learning Experiences
According to co-author Harvey Levenson, Cal Poly Professor Emeritus, “the book appeals to different learning styles, and seems to have become the go-to book for teaching graphic communication and related topics across education levels and for industry training.”
Published by IntuIdeas and printed on demand by Yurchak Printing in Landisville, PA, the book also comes with a free syllabus to help instructors integrate the book into their courses.
Additionally, a consortium of colleges and universities in China is translating the book, including Beijing Institute of Graphic Communication, Shanghai Publishing and Printing College, Shenzhen Polytechnic, and University of Shanghai for Science and Technology.
